SASSI - The Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative


SASSI was initiated in November 2004 in order to inform and educate all participants in the seafood trade, from wholesalers to restaurateurs through to seafood lovers. The initiative builds on an earlier project started in Kwazulu-Natal Province which sought to educate restaurant dealers about the MLRA and other marine conservation issues. It has WWF-SA (via funding from The Green Trust) and the South African Department of Environmental Affairs & Tourism (DEAT) as primary funding/support partners, and Ezemvelo KwaZulu Natal Wildlife, Two Oceans Aquarium, TRAFFIC , Sea World at uShaka, The South African Institute of Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), and the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) as implementing partners.
