Hong Kong Sustainable Seafood Coalition

The HKSSC offers a practical and collaborative way to demonstrate good sourcing practices by its members committing to voluntary codes on responsible seafood sourcing. HKSSC members come together to find solutions to shared challenges, and drive the agenda with the support of a Secretariat. Expert groups are engaged to ensure sourcing practices tackle pressing issues such as illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) fishing, overfishing, traceability, harmful fish farming practices and risks to human health.

Our sustainability goals for 2021:

  • Grow membership (buyers or sellers of seafood in HK; other organisations that can influence seafood sourcing decisions)
  • Add local retailers to membership e.g. supermarkets
  • Produce sustainability risk profiles for up to 10 species that have not been assessed elsewhere (e.g. WWF) but that are sourced by our members
  • Launch an online sustainable seafood sourcing platform with the support of our members
