The Seafood Now Council is tasked with creating, coordinating and hosting local events, research efforts, programs and promotions, both internal and external to The Florida Aquarium, creating awareness and addressing commercially viable solutions to the growing problem of seafood sustainability. From education programs incorporated into the everyday mission of the Aquarium, to seafood industry forums, to culinary events designed to create consumer awareness, the goal of the Seafood Now Council is to understand many of the issues at the root of the problem, and to explore and present options and opportunities to all participants and stakeholders in the seafood (value) chain.
