Who we are

Funding FISH is a grant makers collaborative dedicated to achieving sustainable fisheries in Europe.

We recognise implementing the recently reformed Common Fisheries Policy presents real opportunities for progress and yet there will also be significant challenges.

In 2015 a handful of philanthropic foundations came together to benefit from working more closely and pooling resources.
