Over £3.9 million has been dedicated to 106 fisheries and projects around the world through the Ocean Stewardship Fund.
This includes 81 projects awarded through our annual grant scheme.
In 2023, £750,000 was awarded to projects including reducing seabird interactions, identifying octopus species and teaching fishers how to release turtles safely.
Around 40% of the grants will support fisheries in developing economies, such as Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa, and includes four fisheries that are transitioning to sustainable practices through the In-Transition to MSC program.

Each year, over £1 million in grants are available for fisheries at all stages on their path to sustainability.
