Science is at the core of the SFP mission and our technical experts are dedicated to analyzing and interpreting data from around the world to provide the very best scientific information to the seafood industry.
Science is central to our work at SFP. Understanding the status of fish stocks, their trends, or data related to fish farming is vital to helping us guide and advise our partners. Our science program has developed information systems and resources that enable the seafood industry to develop viable sustainability plans and track their goals. The team includes fisheries and aquaculture analysts and data specialists based in more than half a dozen countries who run FishSource, SFP's online database of fisheries information and several other programs to measure and track the progress of improvement efforts.
