Project UK Fishery Improvement Support England

Marine Stewardship Council - Project Dates:
May 2017 - December 2021

Description of Project:
Project UK Fisheries Improvements (PUKFI) is working towards an environmentally sustainable future for UK fisheries by running Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) on six UK fisheries that have been selected by the UK supply chain. They were selected due to their importance for the UK market.

PUKFI will use the MSC process as a tool to develop credible FIPs, giving each fishery the tools to implement changes and to ensure their sustainable future.

Services Provided:

Poseidon was commissioned to provide ongoing advice throughout the FIP process.  Two Poseidon Directors are providing on-going technical support to the four FIPs including reviewing outputs, advising Steering Group meetings and conducting the annual benchmarking exercise.
