The Fisheries Conservation Foundation

The Fisheries Conservation Foundation
The Fisheries Conservation Foundation (FCF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that promotes the work and knowledge of aquatic scientists, resource managers, and environmental professionals. The FCF strives to ensure that objective, peer-reviewed scientific information about fisheries and aquatic resources reaches policy-makers and the public, so the decisions made about the use of our freshwater and marine ecosystems are logical, informed, and based on the principles of sustainability.

The Fisheries Conservation Foundation was founded in 2003 as an outreach arm of the American Fisheries Society (AFS). Established in 1870, AFS is the oldest and largest professional society representing fisheries scientists around the world. Members of AFS, more than 9,000 professionals, address the full spectrum of fish, fisheries, and aquatic resource issues. The Fisheries Conservation Foundation strives to connect the scientific expertise of AFS with other conservation partners and like-minded organizations to inject current scientific knowledge of aquatic resource issues into the public and political knowledge base.

Cape Eleuthera Institute

Cape Eleuthera Institute
The Cape Eleuthera Institute aims to change the way people live and view resources, especially in coastal communities. CEI connects people to the environment by being a hub for exploration, primary research, and information exchange. Local partners for education and outreach include The Island School and Deep Creek Middle School and collaborations with universities and other NGOs worldwide allow CEI to pursue projects with widespread results. The five major research areas at CEI include: sustainable food production through aquaculture and aquaponics; shark conservation; bonefish and flats ecology; coral reef ecology; and, sustainable systems (renewable energy, green building, etc.). Our facility was designed to integrate people with the local environment to create greater awareness of and respect for fragile ecosystems.
