F3 Challenge commits to UN Sustainable Development Goal

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

The F3 Challenge registered a voluntary commitment titled “Future of Fish Feed: A collaborative effort toward fish-free aquaculture feeds” at the UN’s Ocean Conference June 5-9 in New York City. 

The pledge supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 to “conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.”

 The F3 Challenge Team commits to:

  • Award the first F3 prize in 2017.
  • Launch another challenge in 2017 to further innovation.
  • Hold another stakeholder meeting in 2019.
  • Encourage an International Feed Innovation Network (FIN) that accelerates innovations to take pressures off wild-caught fisheries so that forage fish, and the higher trophic level, which represent the ocean as we know it, will remain for future generations.
