Second round opens for Global Fisheries Sustainability Fund
The Global Fisheries Sustainability Fund (GFSF) is open to organisations including fisheries, governments and research scholars.
It is designed to improve the research, knowledge, technology and guidance available to small-scale and developing world fisheries working towards MSC certification.
David Agnew, director of standards at the MSC, said: “For many fisheries, achieving the scientific, independently verified criteria required for MSC certification is a significant challenge.
“We established the Global Fisheries Sustainability Fund to support fisheries with the knowledge, tools and expertise they require to achieve the MSC Standard.”
“This investment will not only help more fisheries to achieve their aspirations of sustainability, it will also help to secure seafood supplies and fishing based economies for future generations.” ■
