Sam’s Club exec joins Global Aquaculture Alliance board

Sam’s Club’s senior director for fresh meat, seafood and gourmet deli, Robert Fields, is the newest member of the board of directors of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, a standards setting and certification association for the industry.

“I look forward to working with the GAA board on charting a course for greater aquaculture sustainability, which is critical if we’re to meet the food needs of the world’s growing population,” Fields said in a statement. “I also look forward to providing insight to the GAA board as a member of retail community on matters such as consumer education.”

“Bob Fields as an individual, and Walmart/Sam’s Club as a retailer, have been in the forefront on issues of sustainability, including aquaculture production. We are pleased that we will have his perspective as a board member on the issues facing our industry,” said GAA executive director Wally Stevens.

Fields is currently the only retailer on the 20-member board.
