Wakao Hanaoka, CEO & President, Seafood Legacy Co., Ltd.
It has been about 6 years since Seafood Legacy was founded. As the sustainable seafood movement comes of age in Japan, I am very happy to usher in the birth of a new organization that supports this effort. Our company will continue to use Japan’s best-of-class expertise and foresight in sustainable seafood as well as our rich experience and knowledge in both philanthropy and business and leverage our global network to work with various stakeholders in providing world-standard solutions that are feasible for Japan.

Shunji Murakami, CEO & President, UMITO Partners Inc.
As sustainability becomes a more widely accepted concept in Japan, it is also recognized that we need to focus on making concrete positive impacts on sustainability in the ocean and fishery. Through the new organizational launch, we envision providing sustainability solutions to fishery and community issues and needs in ways that they want to take those initiatives instead of being forced to do so.
