Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is reshaping the world of corporate responsibility in the seafood industry through the creation of powerful information tools and a methodology that enables companies to directly engage with suppliers of natural resources.
Our Vision is one of healthy marine and aquatic ecosystems; secure seafood supplies; and a thriving, responsible seafood economy.
Our Mission is to engage and catalyze global seafood supply chains in rebuilding depleted fish stocks and reducing the environmental impacts of fishing and fish farming.
Since its founding in 2006, SFP has been leading and catalyzing fishery and aquaculture improvement projects globally by convening, educating, and advising supply chain stakeholders including major retailers, restaurant chains, seafood brand owners, buyers, producers (fishers), nonprofit organizations, and fisheries management and scientific institutions to improve fisheries and aquaculture practices and policies.
SFP fills a specific gap between industry and the marine conservation community, utilizing the power of the private sector to help less well-managed fisheries meet the environmental requirements of major markets. Our work is organized around two main principles: making available up-to-date information on fisheries for the benefit of major buyers and other fisheries stakeholders; and using that information to engage all stakeholders along the supply chain in fisheries improvements and moving toward sustainability.
SFP operates through two main principles: information and improvement.
