Off the Hook awarded runner up in global contest!
On Friday afternoon we learned that Off the Hook was named as one of two runners up in National Geographic's "Solution Search" contest. There were 103 entries from all over the world, and we are really honoured to have been named as one of the top three.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support, and for spreading the word about Off the Hook. As one of the runners up, we win a $5000 grant to go towards our work, and a trip to Washington D.C. to meet with key stakeholders in international fisheries management. In addition to the grant and the trip we hope that the exposure we get through this contest will encourage more fishing communities to get involved, and more people to start asking where their seafood comes from, who harvested it, and how.
Again, thank you for supporting small scale sustainable fishing.
