Secure Fisheries launched the Fisheries Conflict Research Consortium (FCRC) in November 2017 after convening the first Fisheries Conflict Workshop at One Earth Future’s headquarters in Colorado, USA. The goal of the FCRC is to organize and promote research around fisheries conflict by:

  • Establishing formal channels of communication between researchers
  • Organizing research efforts to leverage partnerships and varied skills while avoiding overlap and competition
  • Increasing understanding of the root causes and consequences of fisheries conflict around the world
  • Raising awareness about fisheries conflict in relevant stakeholder communities
  • Promoting interventions that reduce the likelihood and intensity of fisheries conflict and that are based on sound science and realistic policies
