    Closely related to sustainability, the circular economy seeks to keep the value of products, materials, and resources such as water and energy, within the economic circle for as long as possible, while minimizing waste generation.

Seen in this light, we could be talking about the seafood industry, right? 

    The truth is that in the fishing and aquaculture sector, where sustainability is an essential value, it is increasingly common to find companies where the “circular economy” concept is part of their philosophy and is either already being applied effectively or is among the commitments for the near future. The ultimate goal? To achieve zero waste or, at least, to close the life cycle of products with minimum waste.
