8:30 – 9:30 am: Registration and Breakfast

9:30 – 9:45 am: Opening Remarks and Introduction to Traceability

9:45:00 – 10:45 am: Panel 1 Traceability: The Ecosystem Approach

Consumers and retailers are demanding increased transparency and traceability in global supply chains. That pressure is especially focused toward the historically opaque seafood industry, due to recent exposés revealing persistent fraud, human rights violations, and illegal activity. As a result, seafood industry businesses are facing demands for traceability and transparency information from multiple sides – retailers and consumers, resource regulators, and the conservation and public health sectors.

This panel will explore the collaborative ecosystem that is developing to support robust and verifiable end-to-end solutions for myriad traceability challenges worldwide. We’ll also discuss the technologies and innovations that can help all businesses in the sector track fish on its journey from ocean to plate.

 10:45 – 11:00 am: Break

11:00 – 12:15: Hosted round-table conversations  

12:15 – 1:15 pm: Lunch: Crafted by Ray's culinary team

1:15 – 1:45 pm: Micro Keynotes

Smart Catch- An interview with Dune Ives, Senior Director of Philanthropic Initiatives at Vulcan Inc.

1:45 – 2:45 pm: Panel 2 Supplying Demand: The Challenges of Sourcing and Serving Sustainable Seafood

Chefs are an underutilized resource in the fight to increase seafood sustainability. The majority of the fish eaten in the US is consumed in restaurants, and chefs are uniting these conversations around the dinner table in today's food-crazy culture. In this panel, we talk to chefs and supply chain players who are escalating on-the-ground change through new programs like Seattle's Smart Catch. How are these forward-thinking players using their platforms as a way to introduce consumers to diverse, sustainable seafood? How might they work together to drive demand for more responsibly sourced fish?

2:45 – 3:00 pm: Break

3:00 – 4:00 pm: Panel 3 Buildings and Food: Collaborating for Healthy Cities and Thriving Waterways

As a coastal city, Seattle and its waterways are profoundly connected. Urban development and industry impact the quality of local oceans and rivers. In turn, the health of our waterways is essential to supporting the coastal industries and seafood populations that feed us. This panel brings together producers, non-profits, and industry leaders for a conversation about supporting local aquaculture, protecting habitat for wild fish, and working with city officials and developers to conserve the vital ecosystem that supports us all.

Check back soon for panelist lineup.
