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.
What others say about the ODP
Since the ODP launched in 2015, we have received positive press and feedback from stakeholders and participants. Companies that disclose their seafood sourcing are seen to be taking a leading role in the industry.
What participating companies have said about the ODP
Participating companies have shared their reasons for disclosing and the benefits that they have experienced from developing their disclosures.
