SmartFish International aims to improve the social and environmental future of artisanal fishing in Mexico. They empower fishing families to catch and produce high-quality, sustainably-caught seafood. In turn, they cultivate demand for and sell their fish to the hospitality and gourmet consumer sectors. As a result, fishers can make double while catching less than half, fishing more sustainably; their wives earn new wages processing their fish. As a social enterprise, SmartFish creates new markets for sustainable seafood, and rewards fishers for sustainable practices. SmartFish complements NGO and government programs by taking the novel step of directly incentivizing sustainable fishing. - See more at: http://www.oceanfdn.org/ocean-conservation-projects/listings/smartfish#s...
