What is Fisherry Improvement Project (FIP)?

A FIP is an alliance of stakeholders – retailers, processors, producers, and/or catchers – that comes together to resolve problems within a specific fishery or improve some specific aspect of the fishery that requires attention. The FIP works through key organizations and individuals, talking through the management of the fishery and the challenges that it may face, identifying data that needs to be collected, agreeing on a set of priority actions that should be undertaken to improve the fishery, and then overseeing an action plan.
