Sustainable Seafood Week 2018 at the Kyoto International Film Festival

2018/10/13 Event

Kyoto City Central Market played host to a special event on Saturday 13 October to mark Sustainable Seafood Week 2018. The Kyoto City Central Wholesale Market in western Tokyo saw MC Seitaro Mukai (Tenshin) take to a specially prepared stage at 11.15am in the covered section of the great market, with hundreds of locals sitting in attendance.

Kaoru Nemoto, the Director of United Nations Information Centre, stepped up to the stage first, to discuss the connection between Sustainable Seafood Week 2018 and the United Nations Sustainable Develop Goals, known as SDGs. SDG goal 14 aims to “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development”

Guests included Naoki Tanaka, Aniyakko Tsubaki (Grunge) and his wife, Kanako Kadowaki, before Kozo Ishi (Marine Stewardship Council’s Japan Office Program Director) and Koji Yamamoto (Aqua Stewardship Council’s Japan General Manager) presented a talk show with MSC ambassador Naoki Tanaka, quizzing the audience on their seafood eating habits and preferences and awarding prizes after a game of Rock–paper–scissors.
