Recognising the urgent need to improve the state of our fishery stocks, WWF-Malaysia introduced the Fishery Improvement Project (FIP). FIP aims to promote sustainable fisheries which oversees fishery stocks, ocean ecosystems, and fishery management.
 
Two such projects in Sabah are the Yellowfin Tuna FIP in Mabul Island, Semporna and the Reef Fishes FIP in Tun Mustapha Park, Kudat. Covering a total of 500,000 hectares, these projects contribute to the sustainable fisheries management of two of Sabah’s priority seascapes. These projects are part of WWF-Malaysia’s Sustainable Fisheries Initiatives, which aims to transform fisheries management in Malaysia towards sustainability that will ultimately reduce overfishing and improve the well-being of coastal communities and marine environment.
