Blue foods are highly diverse, rich in essential nutrients, and often produced sustainably, yet routinely left out of discussions on the future of food.

The Blue Food Assessment provided high-level insights into the roles of blue foods in healthy, sustainable, resilient, and just food systems. Blue foods are now increasingly being integrated in global policy discussions, including through the work of the Aquatic/Blue Food Coalition.

The objective of the Blue Food Futures Programme is to build on past progress in blue food research, policy, and implementation through four interrelated lines of work: further our understanding of the potential and limits of blue food in food system transformations; better integrate blue foods into policies for food, climate, and nature; develop a series of blue food solution initiatives, co-produced by blue food stakeholders; and strengthen partnerships, build capacity, and promote access to blue food data by investing in a global community of practice.
