After more than a decade of development, fishery improvement projects now engage fisheries on every continent and in every major seafood commodity. CEA conducted the first global landscape review of fishery improvement projects to answer questions about the conservation intervention’s history, evolution, best practices, lessons learned, and associated costs. CEA paired desk top analyses with over 140 expert interviews and FIP site visits in 13 countries. CEA produced a 200 page confidential report for the sponsoring foundations as well as a 20 page public summary in both English and Spanish to support the global conservation community. CEA presented its findings at the 2016 Seafood Summit in Malta.
The investigation was commissioned by The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore, and the Rockefeller Foundation.
