The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) on June 14 published its 2020 Annual Report.
The 46-page 2020 Annual Report highlights GAA's commitment to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) as well as the non-profit organisation's commitment to serving its almost 400 individual and corporate members and its more than 2,900 Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)-certified facilities during a challenging year defined by the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 305,000 people are employed by BAP-certified facilities, which produced an estimated 23 billion meals (based on a 4-ounce serving).
'I am incredibly proud of my GAA associates for their achievements in 2020. We should also be proud of the women and men in the industry who surmounted the challenges of 2020 with courage and commitment. Just think what we can achieve in 2021 and beyond with that same professionalism and passion. This is a great opportunity for us to live up to our aspirations for a healthy global society, where all 17 SDGs are consistently being addressed,' says GAA CEO Wally Stevens in his 'Letter from the CEO.'
Each accomplishment outlined in the 2020 Annual Report supports one or more of the 17 SDGs as well as GAA's vision, 'A world that embraces and enables the role of responsibly farmed seafood in meeting global nutrition needs.'
