More than 2,500 species or species groups of aquatic animals and plants are consumed around the world. The Blue Food Assessment set out in 2019 to:
1) fill important gaps in our understanding of the role blue foods play in global food systems
2) inform and drive change in the policies and practices that will shape future food systems.
The Blue Food Assessment is an international joint initiative that brings together over 100 scientists from more than 25 institutions around the world. The Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University and Stanford University’s Center for Ocean Solutions and Center on Food Security and the Environment are lead science partners and EAT is the lead impact partner.
This interdisciplinary team supports decision-makers in evaluating opportunities, tradeoffs and implementing solutions to build healthy, equitable and sustainable food systems. Research has been published in peer-reviewed papers and reports for decision-makers. This work provides a scientific foundation for integrating blue foods in future food systems.
