The Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust Supports NORA
The Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust engages in a wide range of projects and grant funding to support marine and freshwater conservation, fisheries, aquaculture and fish trading in the UK. We recongise the key role that oysters have played in the aquatic ecosystems of the north Atlantic region for millennia, contributing to biodiversity, coastal defence, nutrient cycling, water quality, as well as to our historical seafood supply. In our support for NORA, we hope to help foster close collaboration and knowledge sharing among all those interested in the native oyster Ostrea edulis in European waters. Through NORA’s work in building public awareness, we hope to see the desire grow at all levels of society to protect and value oysters, for their role in healthy marine environments, and as truly sustainable healthy food.
