A grassroots approach to supporting coastal communities.

The work we do is rooted in the local community. Our purpose is to amplify the voices of the fishing industry – providing a platform to help them develop their skills, celebrate their heritage and share their stories. Within this work, our main areas of focus are community development, education, science, heritage, culture, and the arts.
