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.
