Fishery Improvement Projects
SFP pioneered the use of fishery improvement projects (FIPs) to address environmental challenges in marine fisheries.
A FIP brings together retailers, processors, producers, and fishers to demand and leverage better management of marine resources, by identifying environmental issues and implementing priority actions to address the root causes of fishery depletion.
SFP has been a strong proponent of industry leadership in fishery improvement efforts. Today, more than half of the world’s FIPs are industry-led.

SFP’s FIP and AIP Archive includes FIPs and AIPs that SFP once directly supported, but which are now led by industry or another third party.
