SIFT is delighted to announce that it has received a significant donation from The Blue Marine Foundation, a registered UK charity (No. 1137209).

Blue Marine Foundation creates partnerships with the private sector to raise funds for marine conservation and works with governments to construct the right legislative frameworks for marine conservation and sustainable fisheries.

SIFT intends to use the grant to develop and undertake its campaign to introduce area closures to mobile fishing gear within the Firth of Clyde.

Bob Younger, Chairman of SIFT said “We are delighted by this demonstration of support from BLUE – an organisation that has already proved it can back winners by securing the funding required to protect the enormous Chagos Marine Reserve in the Indian Ocean”.
