Fisheries and Marine Management

Oceans and coastal environments are home to tremendous biodiversity, provide food for over a billion people, and support livelihoods for hundreds of millions more. But fisheries are common-pool resources and therefore subject to systematic overexploitation. Through CSF’s Oceans & Fish program we work to protect and recover fish stocks by building the economic capacity of resource managers and decision-makers, and designing effective fisheries and marine protected area management strategies.
