About the Fisheries Survival Fund

The Fisheries Survival Fund was established in order to ensure long-term sustainability of the Atlantic sea scallop fishery. FSF participants include the vast majority of full-time Atlantic scallop fishermen from Maine to South Carolina. We work closely with with academic institutions and independent scientific experts to foster cooperative research and to help sustain this fully-rebuilt fishery. FSF also works with the federal government to ensure that the fishery is responsibly managed and well taken care of.
