The initiative, re-FISH, focuses on re-cycling, re-purposing and re-using Safety, Vessel and Fishing Equipment and giving it to those that need it most. Initially collecting the used equipment at source and then shipping, and distributing where needed – starting with Bangladesh – through our global partner network. By re-furbishing donated gear, we create local jobs, benefit local economies and provide ownership of the donated equipment.
Beyond the immediate environmental benefits – ensuring that unused gear doesn’t end up in the landfill or worse, the sea – there are added benefits to the Bangladeshi fishing community in terms of improving safety outcomes, empowering communities and helping to alleviate poverty.
