About Secure Fisheries

SECURE FISHERIES is a program of One Earth Future. We work with local, regional, and international stakeholders to strengthen fisheries governance, combat illegal fishing, and promote sustainability in fragile and post-conflict regions as a pathway towards greater peace and stability.

One Earth Future

Secure Fisheries is a program of One Earth Future (OEF), a privately funded and independent operating foundation. OEF provides active operational, research, and strategic support to its programs, allowing them to focus deeply on complex problems and create positive alternatives to conflict.

Secure Fisheries cooperates closely with other programs at OEF to address the root causes of conflict in some of the world’s most vulnerable areas. We work with:

  • Shuraako, to ensure fisheries investments in the Somali region support sustainable practices and expansion of the supply chain so that fisheries can provide economic and food security for fishers and Somali communities in the long-term. 
  • Stable Seas, on collaborative reports and the Stable Seas Maritime Security Index, an interactive tool that examines the complex linkages between nine maritime security issue areas, including fisheries, to generate innovative solutions to maritime security threats. 
  • OEF Research, on original research and collaborative reports that explore the relationships between fisheries, conflict, peace, and governance.
  • Our Secure Future: Women Make the Difference, in supporting women’s roles in fisheries governance and fishing sector development.
