The Salmon FIP Partnership was launched in collaboration with leading seafood companies and salmon producers across the Pacific Rim with the goal of increasing the volume of sustainable or improving wild capture salmon to 75% of global production. Currently about half of global production is certified as sustainable according to a credible, third-party standard and/or on an active improvement pathway.
This pan-Pacific partnership is stewarding a number of regional Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) to address serious sustainability challenges, including overfishing, poaching, bycatch and hatchery impacts. Asian salmon fisheries in Russia and Japan are key initial targets, since these regions collectively produce more than half of the planet’s wild capture salmon and have significant improvement opportunities. Over the last several years, with significant technical support from partnership members, approximately 29% of Asian salmon fisheries have become MSC certified, entered full MSC assessment or joined a credible Fishery Improvement Project (FIP). To achieve the 75% goal, the level of fishery engagement in the region will need to be tripled.
