The Fisheries Secretariat (FishSec) is a non-profit organisation working towards sustainable fisheries in Europe through policy advocacy, international cooperation, capacity building and communication. We are active in EU and regional policy development, with a focus on the Baltic Sea.
Our vision is sustainable fisheries embedded in thriving communities, fishing within the limits of the marine ecosystem with minimum impact on marine resources and their habitats.
We aim to influence policy towards sustainable fishing through a dialogue with policymakers and stakeholders, building on science and practical experience.
FishSec was established in 2003 by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, WWF Sweden and the Swedish Anglers’ Association.
