How seafood business models can incorporate circular economy principles

University of Manchester

Maria Sharmina and colleagues at the Tyndall Centre and MMU have published a paper in Nature Food on how companies in the seafood sector can make their business models both more resilient and compliant with circular economy principles.

Seafood is expected to become increasingly important in future food systems and healthy diets. This transition will require the seafood sector to adapt business practices to respond to environmental and social challenges while increasing resilience.

The new paper develops the circular economy-resilience framework for business models (CERF-BM) and, through exploring the current literature, applies this framework to business models in the seafood sector.

To reap the synergies between the circular economy and resilience mechanisms, seafood businesses could extract more value from organic waste and dematerialize their business models.
