Supporting collaboration, empowering fishermen

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We bring together fishermen, scientists, managers and supply chain professionals, immersing them for 2-3 days to work with the complexities of fisheries science, management and economics away from the pressures of fishing.

BUILDING A SHARED UNDERSTANDING

Trust and a shared understanding are built: fishermen become more comfortable with the processes involved; policy-makers and scientists learn the inner workings and concerns of the fishing community.

Fishermen leave motivated to collaborate further, using what they know to shape the future of their industry and improve their prospects.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

The courses cater for all levels and abilities – the courses will build on your current level of knowledge but no prior learning is required. The courses are open to all active fishermen.

PROVEN MODEL

Our courses are based on the highly successful Marine Resource Education Programme (MREP). We apply this model with and for UK fishermen, ensuring the content is directly relevant to fisheries here in the UK.

SPONSORSHIP AND FUNDING

Our Sustainable Fisheries Education Programme is funded by a number of partners. We are campaigning to raise funds to support this work, allowing us to deliver vital training for fishermen for the next few years.
