FishSource is an online information resource about the status of fish stocks and fisheries. The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) created FishSource with the vision that fisheries experts around the world could openly share their public scientific and technical information and provide major seafood buyers with up-to date, impartial, actionable information on the status of fisheries and the improvements they need to make to become sustainable.
FishSource does not make sustainability judgments itself – it compiles and summarizes all the information analysts need to evaluate sustainability in one place. Our goal is to help provide information on as many fisheries as possible, to help guide as many companies as possible to source fish sustainably. By assembling the essential data and making it freely available, FishSource lowers the key barrier to entry for companies to engage in sustainable sourcing. Companies thus save time and resources by accessing FishSource for sustainability information and fisheries status. FishSource's open source platform also allows other organizations to conduct their own assessments based on the available data.
