Session Synopsis: The global community has set ambitious commitments and targets for achieving healthy marine ecosystems and technologies play an indispensable role in achieving that. Through the Healthy Oceans Finance and Technology Forum, ADB aims to share with developing member countries (DMCs) and ADB operations the latest innovations, technologies, and practical solutions for ocean health, with the aim of enhancing knowledge for increased and more impactful investments.

This session took a deep dive into the available scalable solutions and technologies for blue foods, also known as aquatic foods, which can be defined as foods that are captured or cultivated from the ocean, rivers, lakes, ponds, raceways, and tanks. Blue foods can derive from aquatic animals, plants, or algae. They supported hundreds of millions of livelihoods and are a critical source of nutrition for several billion people around the world.
