SPONSORS

The Pacific Islands track is made possible thanks to the support of:

State Dept logo
The U.S. Department of State supports global efforts to maintain healthy and productive marine ecosystems. We also seek to foster private sector-led growth, unlock the power of the marketplace, and facilitate the implementation of activities and partnerships to support commercially viable investment opportunities to develop fisheries-related businesses in the Pacific. In collaboration with Fish 2.0, the U.S. Department of State will help sustainable fisheries, mariculture, and aquaculture entrepreneurs from the Pacific Islands develop their businesses and connect with potential investors in the United States and elsewhere. This year we are pleased to partner with the Government of Australia’s Fisheries Research and Development Corporation to enable new opportunities for Pacific Islands businesses to integrate into regional and global supply chains. Funding provided by the United States Government will promote a healthy ocean and sustainable fisheries, which are closely tied to cultures, livelihoods, jobs, and food security in the Pacific Islands region.

We invite co-sponsors to join the US State Department in support of this track and its events. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss this opportunity to help shape Pacific Island sustainable seafood.
