Abstract or Summary
  • Retailers and suppliers of seafood are concerned about assured supply and their broader reputation with consumers. In theory, these concerns align with efforts to manage fisheries sustainably and reduce their environmental and social impacts. Hence engaging seafood supply chains more actively in fisheries management should help improve the fisheries in various ways. Fisheries Improvement Partnerships (FIPs) were developed to engage seafood supply chains more broadly in fisheries management and test this hypothesis. The Fisheries Improvement Partnership concept was tested between 2002 and 2006 and then implemented globally, starting initially in whitefish fisheries. This paper describes the impact of the FIPs in the whitefish sector and their proliferation into other seafood sectors from 2006 to 2016, the development of distinct FIP implementation arrangements, and the unique and critical roles European and North American importers played in causing some of the key improvements in select fisheries. The paper then systematically analyses how FIPs worldwide have performed considering key aspects of stock condition, including biomass and fishing mortality relative to reference points, and of management and compliance. This is the first such global analysis of FIP performance. Finally, we explore various hypotheses for the differing performance patterns between FIPs and elaborate on the overall contribution of FIPs to sustainable seafood globally.
