How to Get Involved as a Supply Chain Company

Thank you for your interest in joining the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability!

Only companies in the seafood supply chain (i.e., companies involved in the making, processing, trading, or selling of seafood) are welcome to join as full members of the GDST. Please note that GDST membership and adoption of GDST 1.0 go hand-in-hand. By agreeing to become a GDST member you are also agreeing to adopt GDST 1.0.

  • What does being a GDST member entail?

Being a member of the GDST entitles your company to participate in members-only GDST discussions and consultations, to have a voice in GDST decision making, and to contribute to the evolution of the standards.

  • What does adopting GDST 1.0 mean?

Adopting GDST 1.0 is a public statement that GDST 1.0 should be accepted as the new global industry standard for seafood traceability. Adopting GDST 1.0 does NOT commit your company to any specific action or timeline for implementing the GDST standards. By adopting GDST 1.0 you are helping make interoperable seafood traceability a reality.
