The State of Sustainability Initiatives (SSI) project is a multi-institutional effort to understand and report on market-based approaches to sustainable commodity production and trade. This report uses the analytical framework devised and used for a number of land-based commodities but here adapted to ocean wild fish and aquaculture. The study is a effort that assembles and comparatively analyzes an information and analytical base covering some major marine and freshwater sustainability-oriented certification initiatives.
