Our Work

We work with all stakeholders to uncover, design and implement science-based, context relevant initiatives to drive sustainability across seafood supply chains. This approach produces environmental and socio-economic outcomes for both people and the planet. Whether you are leading a fisheries project, buying seafood, investing in fisheries reform, or part of an initiative or NGO in the seafood sector, let us help deliver the impact you seek.

If you’re working in sustainable seafood, we can help you deliver on your goals.

Our ever-expanding portfolio of environmental, social and economic fisheries sustainability work spans the globe. We have developed salmon escapement management strategies in Japan; mapped out supply chains of the highest valued seafood species in China; designed and led curricula for tuna harvest strategy workshops in West Africa, Indonesia and Fiji; led anti-poaching initiatives in the Russian Far East; provided fishery risk analysis for seafood business partners across Europe and North America; led dozens of Fishery Improvement Projects across Northeast Asia and Latin America; and accelerated the uptake of electronic monitoring programs on longline tuna vessels in the Pacific Ocean.
