The Ocean Stewardship Fund (OSF) provides grants for fishery improvements and funds important research into bycatch reduction, protecting marine habitats, and the effects of climate change.

We commit 5% of annual royalties from MSC certified product sales to the fund and combine these with third-party donations.

In 2023, we awarded over £750,000 to 26 fisheries and research projects across 15 countries.
