Catalyzing Industry to Rebuild World Fisheries

Commitment by

Darden Restaurants, Inc.

In 2011, Darden committed to helping rebuild troubled fisheries through the creation of an alliance of companies, NGOs, and other groups to support targeted fishery improvement projects (FIPs). The alliance committed to implementing and launching three FIPs in the next three years to help combat illegal fishing, enhance productivity, and reduce negative ecological impacts. The alliance will work strategically to raise awareness of the importance of FIPs and identify additional partners for implementation. Initially, the alliance will include Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and Publix Super Markets. The first of three FIPs will focus on rebuilding the snapper and grouper fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico.
