Stop Illegal Fishing relies on your donations to make a difference. Through our work we are achieving change. Criminal networks are being exposed. Policy is being changed and human and institutional capacity is being built. These are all long-term processes that require dedication, insight and trust - whether setting up an undercover operation or supporting fisheries officers as they challenge established practices or take on complex inquiries.
Stop Illegal Fishing has a reputation for achieving a lot with very little, on awarding the Margarita Lizárraga Medal the FAO stated that ‘Stop Illegal Fishing demonstrate that a lot can be accomplished with relatively small resources through good networking, the sharing of information, regional and international cooperation, and a strong commitment to stop IUU fishing.’
Through all our work we support the transition to a blue economy where developing countries get real benefit from their fisheries resources.
To do this we need your help.
