Sustainable Fisheries Fund

Since 2002, the Sustainable Fisheries Fund (SFF) has provided match funding for small-scale fisheries to build technical capacity and advance sustainability through certifications such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standard, Fair Trade, and registered Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs). SFF grantmaking has supported MSC certification for more than 55 fisheries, Fair Trade-certification for three fisheries, and documented progress in environmental performance and social responsibility for dozens of FIPs. In 2022, toward the goal of centering human rights and social responsibility in seafood sustainability, RLF and its partners focused SFF grantmaking on support to FIPs worldwide to implement the FisheryProgress Human Rights and Social Responsibility Policy.
