This quarter, a group of MARINA Lab members began a capstone project on sustainable seafood in the city of Seattle. On their project they noted, “for many of us who call Seattle home, local seafood is a source of pride – a signpost of our place on the leading edge of sustainability. Yet, what is unclear is just how far down the sustainable seafood path we are, as a city. For Seattle to be a premier sustainable seafood city, we need to not only more clearly define our target, but also see how far we have to go and what we can do to get there.” Over the coming months, this group will be synthesizing what is known about the flow and fate of seafood in Seattle, identifying the sustainability shortfalls, and drafting a roadmap for action for Seattle in its efforts to become a sustainable seafood pioneer. This project, is a collaboration with the Washington State chapter of the Nature Conservancy.
