Secure Fisheries Work

Secure Fisheries employs a science-based approach to eliminating unmanaged competition over fisheries resources and reducing fisheries conflict. Our work supports the development of sustainable fisheries in the service of long-term food security, economic security, and community resilience.


Our projects connect fisheries stakeholders to our original research products through trainings, interactive data tools, research networks, and community engagement.


Our forums connect fisheries stakeholders to each other to promote sustainable fishing practices, link donors and investors to promising fishing sector opportunities, improve information sharing in the fight against illegal fishing, and synthesize foundational research into the causes and consequences of fisheries conflict.


Our original research provides new data sources and evidence-based analysis to strengthen fisheries management while filling a critical knowledge gap in data-poor systems.
