T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation

Posted By on Sep 30, 2014 | 0 comments

The T. Buck Suzuki Foundation was founded in 1981 by commercial fishermen to protect habitat, prevent pollution, and promote sustainable fisheries. For the Foundation a sustainable fishery respects the ecological integrity of the ocean and its resources; is ethical, responsibly governed, economically viable and technologically appropriate; supports adjacent communities; draws on local culture, heritage, and diverse knowledge systems; and enhances health, wellbeing and the public good. The Foundation strongly supports ecosystem based management within integrated marine planning processes, connecting decision makers with affected communities and stakeholders through open, collaborative processes.
