About Us

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) was founded in 2006 as an independent non-governmental organization (NGO) capable of breaking new ground in the world of sustainable seafood and marine and freshwater conservation.

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.

SFP is a non-profit organization exempt from US federal taxation under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3).

How We Work

SFP provides strategic and technical guidance to seafood suppliers and producers, helps convene them together with other like-minded companies in Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs), and builds consensus around specific improvements in policies, marine conservation measures, and fishing and fish-farming practices.

We build the private sector's capacity to make a difference in two ways:

  • by developing business practices and alliances that support sustainable sourcing of seafood;
  • by educating the seafood supply chain about effective options to improve fisheries, including changes to gears, practices and fisheries and marine conservation policies.

We educate seafood buyers and suppliers so they can help improve fisheries and fish-farming regions, choose their sources wisely, and meet their own sustainability commitments.

SFP improves access to information that buyers rely on to guide responsible seafood sourcing. We recommend specific improvements in management. And we provide critical assistance to seafood companies as they work with governments toward fisheries improvements—such as effective harvest regulations, monitoring and enforcement, and measures to cut off trade in illegally caught seafood.
