Northern Cod Fisheries Improvement Project

FFAW-Unifor is working with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) on the northern cod (NAFO Divisions 2J3KL) stewardship fishery operating in the inshore. The FIP aims to implement improvement measures that will ensure a supply of certified sustainable seafood once the stock has grown to levels that support a full commercial fishery.

The FIP is a multi-step, multi-stakeholder initiative aiming to improve fishing practices and management to help the northern cod fishery rebuild and meet or exceed the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standard for sustainable fisheries.
