The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) opened the second round of applications for the Global Fisheries Sustainability Fund. The fund supports fishery science research and projects aimed at assisting fisheries in their journey to achieving MSC certification. 

 This year, a total of £207,500 is available to academic institutions, independent researchers, fisheries, governments and non-governmental organisations. 

The fund will support projects that address the knowledge and capacity obstacles that fisheries face in gaining certification. It is specifically aimed at increasing the accessibility of the MSC programme for more of the world’s fisheries by working to reduce the barriers that small-scale and developing world fisheries face in achieving the MSC Standard.

The deadline for applications for the 2016/2017 round of funding is 13th February 2017.  Find out more about the fund and how to apply by visiting the MSC GFSF website.
