This document provides a framework for scaling up investment in the transition to sustainable fisheries. We hope that it will stimulate the rapid growth of projects that address this challenge and that are urgently required to meet the needs of the 3 billion people who rely on fish for their primary source of animal protein and the 300 million people who are involved in the sector. We also hope it will begin to reveal the considerable benefits that can be gained through this transition and catalyse a conversation about the solutions that will move us forward.
