Description

Ocean Outcomes works to create new and innovative ways to finance the transition to sustainable fisheries. This includes examining the feasibility of a Sustainable Seafood Fund and advancing a business-driven, triple bottom line approach to the challenges facing many of the world’s small scale fishers. This approach focuses on harnessing untapped financing and increasing profitability in small scale fishing enterprises to improve livelihoods and ecosystem health; creating a positive feedback loop for people, planet and profit.
