As part of last year’s United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) agenda-setting process, members of the Blue Food Assessment team were invited to contribute a Food Systems Summit Brief in cooperation with the Scientific Group for the UNFSS. This brief, The Vital Roles of Blue Foods in the Global Food System, highlighted the importance of aquatic foods to global food dialogues.
In the paper, members of the Blue Food Assessment team argue that to ensure blue foods continue to make a significant contribution to global food systems, governments need to incorporate them in their food-related decision-making. By combining recent blue food science, examples of management approaches and other evidence, the paper can serve as a resource for blue food transformation into the future.
