Good Fish Foundation
In november 2014, Good Fish Foundation took ownership of the VISwijzer. The Good Fish Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation. Good Fish Foundations’ goal is to increase the amount of sustainably caught and responsibly farmed seafood for both consumer and entrepreneur.
Apart from that, the Good Fish Foundation focusses on newer fish issues, such as illegal fisheries, poor social conditions and traceability. The NGO primarily focusses on fish supply, processing, consumers, trading and management in both The Netherlands and Europe. Visit the website of the Good Fish Foundation for more information.
The VISwijzer is owned by the Good Fish Foundation. Its existence would not be possible, without the support of other organisations. Organisations that have contributed to the VISwijzer in its current form are the World Wildlife Fund and the National Postcode Lottery.
The VISwijzer in other countries
Consumer guides like the VISwijzer exist all over the world. Just like our VISwijzer, they are made to promote sustainable fish. In the fishing industry, we see a positive change in the amount of sustainable fish caught and responsibly farmed. By working together with other organisations, we hope to create an even bigger impact. To contribute to this goal, we created a coalition of NGO’s called the Global Seafood Ratings Alliance (GSRA).
The GSRA is already working on five different continents! Because of the GSRA, we can focus on improving the sustainability of the fishing industry from all over the world. Want to know more about the GSRA? Visit www.globalseafoodratings.org.
