Blue Food Partnership

We need to transform global food systems at speed and scale to meet the needs of people and planet as our population grows. Blue foods - food from aquatic sources - need to be central to this transformation. If scaled sustainably, the sector can offer a solution to rising malnutrition and food insecurity, while creating jobs and shoring up economic growth. Friends of Ocean Action’s Blue Food Partnership aims to catalyze science-based actions towards healthy and sustainable blue food value chains and works with its members to identify and scale pre-competitive initiatives on priority blue food topics such as aquaculture.
