Fishery improvement project

A fishery improvement project (FIP) is a multi-stakeholder effort to address environmental challenges in a fishery. A FIP utilizes the power of the private sector (e.g., retailers, processors, producers, and/or catchers) to incentivize positive changes toward sustainability in the fishery and seek to make these changes endure through policy change. The FIP identifies the environmental issues that need to be addressed, sets the priority actions that should be undertaken, and then oversees the action plan adopted.
