Sometimes, when solving problems in complex systems, designing simple solutions can work best. One year after we hosted a panel on blended finance and fisheries at SOCAP (the Social Capital Markets conference in San Francisco), we will be returning to this conference with a refined perspective on blended finance, and share what we’ve learned first-hand in Peru, Chile and Belize for keeping blended finance simple.

A fresh approach
We create business solutions to ocean challenges.
We envision a global seafood supply chain that produces legal, traceable, trustworthy fish; that rewards responsible fishing with better prices; and that fosters resource conservation.
We listen closely on the ground
and learn from the system to uncover insights, stuck points and opportunities that inform our strategy.
We co-create custom solutions
by working with stakeholders and funders to design strategic interventions in fisheries systems.
We help implement and scale
by partnering with embedded allies over the long term to create change and lasting impact.
The Fisheye Lens
Earlier this year, Future of Fish undertook a research project on fisheries data modernization efforts across governments. From this work we’ve come up with a proposed definition for ‘government data modernization’ and we want to know what you think.
The Information Age is here, but fisheries that are able to effectively collect and use data continue to be a rarity around the world. This generates several problems, including flawed catch limits, a lack of reliable forecasting or enforcement, and the inability to meet demands for adaptive management and sustainable fisheries.
