Impact & Initiatives
A core priority of SFP’s strategy is to ensure that fishery and aquaculture improvement projects (FIPs and AIPs) make good progress under local industry leadership, with strong and engaged support from international markets. Our dedicated SFP initiatives seek to tackle some of the tough issues that FIPs and AIPs have not consistently addressed to date, with a focus on increasing industry capacity and leadership on these challenges.
Protecting Ocean WildlifeEngaging and mobilizing retailers, the seafood industry, and the entire supply chain to reduce the worldwide bycatch of sharks, seabirds, marine mammals, and sea turtles.
Supporting Small-Scale FisheriesHelping small-scale fishers to play a greater role in the management of their fisheries and increase sustainability.
Improving Fisheries ManagementSupporting businesses to engage governments and improve the policies that govern fishing and aquaculture. This includes measures to control illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) fishing.
Promoting Sustainable AquacultureEngaging governments and fish farmers to control the environmental impacts of aquaculture through effective planning and management.
