Our work gets the voices of low impact fishers heard and supports them to protect our European seas.

In just 5 years, LIFE has become a reference at EU level. The significance of LIFE and the importance of our work is increasingly recognized by European institutions, and in fisheries policy making circles, by scientists and other stakeholders.

But it’s the generosity of supporters like you that enables our work to happen. We rely on your support to keep us going. 

By supporting us, you’re investing in a sustainable future for fishing communities, our food systems and our seas. 

You’re helping to build the capacity of small-scale fishers as agents of change, to better organize themselves, to engage responsibly in decision taking processes, to engage with scientists in providing management advice, reduce their impact and to improve their livelihoods through a best practice approach.

You’re helping to provide a dedicated voice and to defend small-scale fishers’ interests at EU level in policy making and decision-making processes.

You’re helping to advocate for fair and sustainable fishing policies with the inclusion of small-scale fishers at the centre of policy making in Europe.

You’re helping to develop sustainable and fair food systems.

You’re helping to secure a future for the next generation of low impact fishers around Europe.
