Our goal is well managed seas with rich biodiversity and thriving fish stocks to secure healthy and local seafood to consumers and a sustainable fishing sector.
Advocating for fisheries within the limits of the marine ecosystem, preserving marine resources as well as their habitats, we are mainly active in the EU and regional policy development in the Baltic Sea.
The aim is to implement policy that ensure sustainable fishing. FishSec does that through analysis, research, communication and 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.
