The Center for Responsible Seafood (TCRS) is hosting the Shrimp Summit 2024 in Chennai, India–the third biggest shrimp producer in the world–from June 27-29.

The discussions will center around subjects such as enhancing the livelihoods and sustainability of small-scale shrimp producers in Asia, particularly those operating in areas where certification is not feasible.

Dr. George Chamberlain, president of TCRS said that the first summit was a success with over 600 in-person and virtual attendees. “The upcoming event will build on that momentum with the continued engagement of retailers, importers, exporters, processors, feed companies, producers, NGOs, and government representatives,” said Chamberlain.

Chennai is the headquarters of many of the largest shrimp-producing companies. It is also a cultural center, and eastward on the coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mahabalipuram. There will be tours on June 27, and sessions will take place on June 28 and 29. After the summit review and closing, which will highlight actionable outcomes, attendees can reflect and wind down at the final event.


Registration will be offered for both in-person and virtual attendance.
