The Kingfisher Foundation works to implement sound fishery management rules and methods that align long term economic prosperity for fishers with good stewardship and sustainable fishing. Themes include rebuilding fish populations, implementing secure access rights, harnessing technology innovations and modern information policies for sound data driven monitoring and management and accountability of commercial and recreational fisheries.
The Kingfisher Foundation supports the Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program, which aims to develop and implement electronic technology and information infrastructure to improve the timeliness and quality of fisheries data, expand access and availability of data, and increase knowledge of fisheries management and science.
