traditional fishers and community organizations to design, scale, strengthen and sustain
fisheries management and conservation at the community level. We bring partners together in
networks to advocate for reform, and share tools and best practices to support fishing
communities across the globe.

Blue Ventures is growing rapidly, and we are at an inflection point in our journey, having
secured multi-year support for expansion in new geographies.
