World Fisheries Trust
Our Impact Why We Exist
World Fisheries Trust, created in 1995, is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to the equitable and sustainable use and conservation of aquatic biodiversity. It acts locally and globally. The approach is multidisciplinary, matching solutions to problems, not problems to solutions.
Our Story What We Do
The organization is not an activist group, but rather works as an honest broker with all points of view and creditable scientific evidence.
We do scientific and social research, contribute to policy development and work on field implementation of solutions. Our particular expertise includes bridging the divide between technical solutions and societal realities, including tools for enhancing community engagement, public awareness, and societal equity.
The combination of local and international projects provides unique insights for this work, as well as providing a conduit between Canadian and international partners.
Our Programs How We Do It
The Eco Learning Hive is a coalition of environmental educators within schools and the community. It provides a one-stop shop for teachers to find an educational opportunity that fits with their classroom curriculum. By encouraging communication and connections, these partnerships lead to a quality environmental education network that is meaningful and accessible.
