The Conservation Alliance is a community of organizations that believe seafood production is a powerful driver of change for the health and biodiversity of our oceans and the economic and social well-being of individuals and communities around the world. With a shared understanding of the changes that need to happen to successfully transform the seafood supply chain, the Alliance works together to accelerate and increase the overall collective impact of our community. This is partly done by sharing expertise and developing tools that help businesses advance their sustainable seafood commitments.
FisheryProgress.org grew out of the Conservation Alliance’s work to revise its Guidelines for Supporting Fishery Improvement Projects in 2015. One of the biggest challenges raised while working on the guidelines was that there was no way to know if existing FIPs meet the guidelines and, more importantly, if they were making progress. Determined to find a solution for this problem, the Alliance revised its guidelines to include the creation of an online tool – FisheryProgress.org – to make information about global FIPs and their progress easier to access, track, and compare.
