Download methodology

As previous iterations of the Seafood Stewardship Index have revealed, the seafood sector requires profound and swift transformation in order to become sustainable.

In 2023, the third iteration of the Seafood Stewardship index will be published and show progress made by the most influential companies in the seafood sector with regards to achieving sustainability.

Today, we publish the updated methodology (link) for public consultation, which will be used for the 2023 Seafood Stewardship Index. The document suggests relevant revisions to the methodology by incorporating both internal learning and external feedback from companies and stakeholders, following the publication of the second benchmark in 2021.

Our methodologies serve as roadmaps to set out what good looks like based on societal expectations and the latest scientific research. It is therefore vital that our methodologies are continuously updated to ensure they are relevant and what we do is coherent and complementary.

We invite companies and all benchmark stakeholders to review and share their comments with us by sending feedback to by 30 September 2022.
