Seafood Alliance for Legality & Traceability (SALT) Knowledge and Collaboration Platform Expression of Interest (EOI)

Date of Issuance: July 12, 2018

Due Date for Interest: September 30, 2018 by 5:00 PM US PDT (Note the extended date)

Period of Performance (estimated): November 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019

The Seafood Alliance for Legality and Traceability (SALT) is a new global alliance for knowledge exchange and action to promote legal and sustainable fisheries through improved transparency in seafood supply chains. SALT brings together the seafood industry, governments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to accelerate learning and support collaboration on innovative solutions for legal and sustainable seafood, with a particular focus on traceability–the ability to track the movement of seafood through supply chains. SALT is a global alliance with interested participants around the globe. SALT is a public-private partnership between USAID and the Walton Family, Packard and Moore Foundations and is implemented by FishWise, a non-profit sustainable seafood consultancy. FishWise implements this effort with 2 full time staff with support from the broader staff.


One of SALT’s main deliverables is a online knowledge platform for learning and collaborating. The platform or “site” should provide relevant content on seafood traceability and be an interactive platform where people can receive relevant information, interact with colleagues and peers, with the option to provide a secure space for collaboration. It should have an easily transferable database platform, functionality, code, and fully customizable/shareable knowledgebase. The platform needs to be built with enough flexibility to adapt to the needs of the project as it continues through the next five years. At a minimum, it will be a single source for curated content on seafood traceability with relevant content for a variety of stakeholders who can contribute content. The SALT platform should:

  • Increase meaningful dialogue and build partnerships that promote traceability
  • Increase the number of people who participate in SALT overall
  • Share best practices with seafood industry, government and NGO stakeholders to further develop their collaborative approaches around traceability
