‘Healthcheck’ activates sustainability reporting 1920 1080 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) – Australia

The project activates CSIROs ‘Healthcheck’ ESG fishing and aquaculture data system by engaging industry, managers and researchers to identify data gaps and prioritise/collect essential indicators to allow more comprehensive ESG reporting.

Verification of fishing and aquaculture sector sustainability credentials is essential to increase ocean outcomes and community benefit. Sector performance currently centres on monitoring fish stocks and economic benefits. However, markets increasingly require traceable evidence of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) indicators such as provenance, safety, diversity, animal welfare, carbon, and biodiversity to inform decisions. Data will be compatible and interoperable with existing data exchanges, for publishing to recognised sustainability frameworks (e.g. Status of Australian Fish Stocks, UN SDGs). Community surveys will allow adaptive prioritisation of future data and reporting needs.
