Blue foods — fish, invertebrates, aquatic plants, and algae captured or cultivated in freshwater and marine ecosystems — play a central role in food and nutrition security for billions of people, yet are often left out of food system analyses, discussions, decisions, solutions, and resource allocations.

- Pip Cohen, Research Program Leader for Resilient Small-Scale Fisheries with WorldFish.
- Jim Leape, Co-Director, Center for Ocean Solutions, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.

Moderator: Imani Fairweather Morrison, Programme Officer for Oak Foundation’s Global Small Scale Fisheries Sub-programme.

Call to Action: Richard Page, Policy Specialist, Ocean Unite, and Maria Honig, Initiative Lead Accelerating Coastal Community Led Conservation, WWF.
