Statement from Board:
Our mission is to ensure a future for the biodiversity of our oceans and the billions who rely on its abundance by fulfilling our role as a trusted educator and arbitrator within the fisheries community and beyond. We form a bridge between the various sectors of the fishing community, environmental groups, government agencies, and the public by presenting in plain terms the many issues facing our ocean today; by tackling carbon emissions at the root (the source of so many urgent problems); creating forums where divergent points of view can be expressed and examined and conflicts resolved collaboratively, with no predetermined outcomes; developing mechanisms to improve the collection and flow of important information; and facilitating the development and implementation of innovative problem-solving approaches. We welcome and value all stakeholders with respect for all and bias towards none. We have spent decades earning the trust of those who make their livelihoods on the water and are thus equipped for this work as few other organizations are.
