Support seafood transparency

The Ocean Disclosure Project (ODP) enables seafood businesses to demonstrate their commitment to transparency and responsible sourcing of seafood by disclosing annual sourcing details of their seafood production.

We provide a simple way for companies to disclose through a common reporting format that can be used to answer the question:

Where does my seafood come from?

Our website enables interested stakeholders including responsible investors and seafood consumers to freely access all ODP profiles and other seafood sourcing disclosures.
