Grants Programme

Tackling bottom trawling and restoring our oceans cannot be achieved by individual organisations working in silos. Instead, we need a strong and diverse global movement with small-scale fishers and coastal communities at its heart. 

We’re building this movement by ensuring that organisations globally have access to the funding, technical support and networks they need to achieve lasting change. 

Our grants programme is central to this vision, as it allows us to provide essential funding to organisations at the forefront of efforts to transform bottom trawling. 

With this support, our members are implementing powerful campaigns sensitive to local dynamics, supporting the rights of coastal communities, and driving practical policy solutions.
