Over £2.6 million has been dedicated to 71 fisheries and projects around the world through the Ocean Stewardship Fund.

In 2022, £700,000 was awarded to projects including satellite tagging stingrays, translocating sea urchins and developing deep-sea cameras.

At least half of the grants will support fisheries in developing economies, such as Indonesia, Mexico and India, that are transitioning to sustainable practices.

Applications for the Ocean Stewardship Fund 2023 are now open.
