Meet the 2019 Seafood Champion Award Winners! 

This year’s Seafood Champion Award winners represent change and progress at many different levels. From changing how a country perceives sustainable seafood to changing industry and supply chains, how governments regulate fisheries and enforce the law, and how individuals and communities support and benefit from sustainable fisheries.

This year’s four winners—one in each of four Award categories—were announced on June 11 in front of a global audience at the SeaWeb Seafood Summit in Bangkok, Thailand in a ceremony that also honored the finalists.
