The Center for Sustainable Fisheries (CSF) is a science-based non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our fisheries resources and the continued economic health of our fishing communities.
Welcome to Center foir sustainble fisheriesPromote greater scientific and socio-economic understanding of our nation’s fisheries and our fishing industry
To accomplish this, CSF works with government agencies, the commercial fishing industry, conservation groups, and the public. We strive to identify specific problems and suggest innovative solutions, while raising public awareness of the importance of fishery research and science. While our primary focus rests on improving scientific understanding, CSF can also share expert legal, economic and policy analyses in support of sustainable fisheries.
CSF’s mission is the attainment of a healthy,well-managed fishery that supports a thriving industry, and the fishing communities that depend upon it, now and into the future. We can do this by working collaboratively with all stakeholders towards improving marine science, surveying and research outcomes. We are equally committed to promoting a greater public understanding of the unique socio-economic, traditional and cultural aspects of commercial fishing- America’s oldest industry.
