Win the Mainstream

Ensuring Global Food Security and Respecting Human Rights

In 2024, We are holding the 10th of the Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Summit (TSSS). Over the past decade, the landscape has changed dramatically in Japan.

Historic legislative reforms were made, including the first major amendments in 70 years to the Fisheries Act and the enactment of the Act on Ensuring the Proper Domestic Distribution and Importation of Specified Aquatic Animals and Plants.

Many leading distributors and retailers have established sustainable procurement policies. Moreover, ESG (environment, social, and governance) investment has been gathering momentum in the seafood sector.

Yet still, risks–illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing which accelerates biodiversity loss and fisheries-resource depletion, and human rights violations–prevail in the global seafood industry.

Japan holds the key to solving these issues. Not only is it the world’s third-largest seafood importer, it is also home to the headquarters of world-leading seafood companies. In order to revitalize Japanese seafood industries and guide them toward sustainable growth, it is crucial that Japan, a central player in the global supply chain, actively exerts global leadership.

From TSSS2024 onward, we will commit ourselves to our new goal for 2030, “Making sustainable seafood the mainstream in the Japanese seafood market”.

Together, let’s take action for the future of Japan, Asia, and the world.

The Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Summit (TSSS) is one of the largest sustainable seafood events in Asia, held annually since 2015.

Based on a theme focusing on the pursuit of environmental sustainability and social responsibility to realize a sustainable seafood industry, front-runners from diverse organizations, including experts, companies, and NGOs in the fields of seafood-related business, fishery resource management, blue finance, and fishery policy, both domestic and international, share their latest knowledge. Participants continue to be inspired by the encounters at TSSS, which have led to a number of joint projects among many organizations.

In 2021, TSSS changed its role and name from a symposium to a summit, and began the challenge of further accelerating the sustainable seafood movement.

Finally, in 2024, the TSSS will be held for the 10th time.

Toward a sustainable and abundant ocean.

We will continue to develop the TSSS as a powerful stage for designing a sustainable seafood industry together with everyone.
