What makes us unique

On paper, we’re a non-profit fishery transformation organization with a mission to end overfishing.

In practice, we’re more than that.

We’re an eclectic bunch that includes design thinkers, entrepreneurs, business consultants and scientists.

While we have decades of experience in seafood and fisheries development, our expertise doesn’t stop there. We also have backgrounds in structured finance, technology, carbon trading, renewables, forest conservation and asset development.

As a team, we’re fascinated by complex problems, and our approach to tackling them is informed by our diversity.

Throughout all we do, we are led by—and live out—our values, every day.
