Working to protect the oceans and make all seafood sustainable 

Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) is dedicated to delivering healthy marine and aquatic ecosystems and a secure seafood supply through the creation of a responsible seafood economy. 

We are working toward a world where all seafood is produced sustainably and protects marine biodiversity. 

To achieve this goal, we engage the most significant seafood retailers, brands, and foodservice companies to catalyze their global supply chains and drive actions to rebuild depleted fish stocks, reduce the environmental impacts of fishing and fish farming, and ensure sustained economic opportunities for fishing communities worldwide.

SFP pioneered the use of fishery improvement projects (FIPs), which bring together players within the supply chain to push for better environmental management of marine resources. In the past 15 years, we have worked in fisheries around the world to replicate FIP successes and increase industry leadership in fishery improvement efforts. We also champion aquaculture improvement projects (AIPs), multi-stakeholder efforts to address environmental challenges in aquaculture producing regions. And we innovated the concept of Supply Chain Roundtables (SRs) to bring together major buyers and importers of seafood in specific sectors to work pre-competitively to activate and monitor FIPs and AIPs across species and countries.

Supply Chain Roundtables

SFP developed Supply Chain Roundtables (SRs) to enhance industry cooperation on fishery and aquaculture improvement. Through SRs, major buyers and importers in a specific seafood sector work together pre-competitively to scale-up their individual efforts and jointly advocate for improvements.


Aquaculture Improvement Projects (AIPs)

An aquaculture improvement project (AIP) is a multi-stakeholder effort to address environmental challenges in aquaculture production. AIPs use the power of the private sector to incentivize positive changes at farm and zonal scales, and seek to make these changes endure through policy change. 


Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs)

Fishery improvement projects (FIPs) are multi-stakeholder bodies that bring together players within the supply chain to demand and leverage better management of wild-capture fisheries. FIPs identify environmental challenges and implement priority actions to address the root causes of fishery depletion.

Target 75

Our Target 75 Initiative is a dedicated, large-scale effort toward achieving sustainability in some of the world’s largest and most visible seafood sectors. T75 seeks to to ensure that 75 percent of world production in 13 key sectors is either sustainable or making regular, verifiable improvements.
