WWF Hong Kong, Seafood Guide Reassessment

Project Location: Worldwide
Project Date: 2013
Project Funding: WWF Hong Kong
Project Summary: MEP undertook a sustainability assessment of 64 capture fisheries and 43 aquaculture production systems using the common capture fisheries methodology and the common aquaculture methodology.


The Client had identified the fisheries, comprising capture fisheries and aquaculture production systems to be assessed, to inform the production of a consumer-facing seafood guide. These fisheries were assessed against the common methodologies designed by WWF and partners. MEP appointed a number of qualified staff to conduct the assessments and to manage the data entry and peer review of the assessments, leading to the submission of the final report and final scoring spread sheet.
