Until now, assessing FIPs’ progress has meant searching dozens of websites. Once buyers find what they’re looking for, documentation is often inconsistent, and they sometimes face questions about the data’s reliability.
FisheryProgress.org, a new website designed in partnership with leading conservation groups and industry conservation leaders, makes that process much better. It brings data from FIPs all over the world together on one platform, using standard metrics to assess progress, and ensuring that data is independently verified.
The site launches the week of October 24th with support from industry and conservation leaders. But FishChoice, which led the site’s development, will be happy to give you a look before the official launch.
I’ll follow up next week to inquire if you are interested in a sneak peek at the site or in learning more about FisheryProgress.org. Meanwhile, give me a call or shoot me an email anytime with questions or to arrange an interview with the FishChoice team. Meanwhile, thanks for giving this a look!
