Who We Are

Fishing into the Future is an independent UK charity led by experienced and forward-thinking people who work in the fishing industry.

We support a progressive and modern fishing sector that harnesses the potential of fishermen, scientists and fisheries managers –  ensuring the fishing industry has a clear role to play in their future, and work in collaboration to deliver long-term, sustainable and prosperous fisheries.

Fishing into the Future provides learning experiences, creates connections and provides opportunities to promote and enable shared participation, effective dialogue and mutual understanding between the fishing industry, scientists and fisheries managers.

Mark Robertson, Skipper of Zenith

“In the 34 years I’ve been a fisherman, we’ve never been taught how fisheries are managed, and how science interacts with the fishing. I’ve been waiting a long time for an opportunity like this to come along, and it’ll make a real difference to the next generation of fishermen”. 

LED BY PEOPLE WORKING IN THE FISHING INDUSTRY

Two-thirds of the team are actively fishing and engaged in the seafood supply chain, complemented by additional expertise from scientists and fisheries experts. On top of their day jobs at the centre of the UK fishing industry, the Board of Trustees dedicate additional time and support to guide the charity’s future work.
