Abstract or Summary
  • As the demand for sustainably caught seafood increases, market actors are increasingly interested in engaging with initiatives to increase the sustainability of their supply chains. Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) have been implemented in many parts of the world and are a way by which retailers and their 1st and 2nd tier suppliers can promote a transition towards sustainability in their supply chains. We analyzed over 70 fisheries improvement programs (FIPs) to examine i) what strategies have been undertaken to move the FIP forward? and ii) what outputs these strategies have given rise to? We examine if there are any differences between developed and developing country FIPs with regard to their aims and their overarching strategies for influencing change. We also examine if differences can be discerned between FIP strategies and observed outputs depending on the type of actors involved in FIP initiation, leadership and coordination. Finally we qualitatively assess if and how the nature of industry involvement in FIP strategic actions affects outputs. This research can provide insight for the process of mainstreaming guidelines for FIPs across different settings.
