I don't know much about SFP or this overview process.  Any insights from forum members would be much appreciated.

hi paul

I may be able to help a little

what is it you want to know

Thanks Tilly.  Questions that come to mind:  Are you familiar with SFP and their review process?  Know anything about their history or possible biases?  What's your perspective on the usefulness of their information?  That kind of thing.  Thanks!

Well there has only been one review that I know of that has been put out by a independent science group and that was last summer

Other reports are put out by stakeholders and so I consider them bias

perspective is that when they say some adjustments need to be made ,that means it is a really bad situation

Salmon are one of the worst problems for sustainability due to the amount of fish meal and fish oil that is needed
