Our History

LAYING THE FOUNDATION

The idea for Fishing into the Future was born out of  direct intervention from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, who recognised the need to better harness the experience and ingenuity of fishermen in driving forward initiatives that support sustainable fishing practices.

COLLABORATIVE PARTNERSHIP

Through the work of the Prince’s Charities
International Sustainability Unit, along
with Seafish and the Gulf of Maine Research
Institute, a series of meetings were held,
culminating in a large industry-focused workshop
in Brixham in 2013.

A BLUEPRINT FOR THE FUTURE

Thanks to the work and commitment from those involved in the post-workshop development process, “Fishing into the Future” was officially launched as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (C.I.O.) in January 2015, and the rest, as they say, is history.
