Like birds, marine fish form aggregations to breed or feed

  Spawning aggregations are the only time most marine fish breed the next generation of fish

  Badly managed fishing on aggregations can quickly deplete fish stocks, making our oceans un-healthy and less resiliant, which affects the livelihoods of those who depend on the fish 


SCRFA - an international science & conservation NGO 501(c)(3)

SCRFA provides science and management information on marine fish aggregations. Our Board of Directors work in international committees, meetings and workshops to promote responsible stewardship of fish aggregations. We help with researching and managing fish aggregations globally, with recent projects in Asia-Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean.



Annually, SCRFA awards a student working on fish aggregations in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean or east Pacific Ocean to attend a Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI) meeting.
