Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) >
The GFTC and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) organized the GDST in 2017 as an international, business-to-business platform to advance interoperable seafood traceability. The GDST brought together seafood supply chain stakeholders from around the world to create the first-ever, global industry standards for seafood traceability, released in 2020. The GFTC continues to support technical development and implementation of the GDST standards.
