Only a minimal number of global squid and octopus fisheries have achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, or are engaged in fishery improvement projects. Producers, processors, and major seafood buyers are increasingly concerned about the need for greater sustainability in squid and octopus source fisheries. In order to meet this need, SFP has focused initial efforts on squid, and has created the Global Squid Supply Chain Roundtable (SR) to convene companies that wish to support improvements, predominantly in the Asia-Pacific and South American regional squid fisheries

SFP may also prepare briefings on emerging sustainability issues in the sector that may impact supply, fishery improvements, corporate reputation, and other areas important to the seafood industry
