FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I join OneFishTwoFish?
OneFishTwoFish helps people give back to the ocean, so their seafood consumption is more sustainable. By joining the program you’ll be helping to return more fish to the ocean. You can feel proud about doing your bit for ocean health and becoming Seafood Positive.
What's the science behind returning fish to the sea?
Our projects use two methods for returning fish to the sea: 1. Fish habitat restoration and 2. Assisted breeding (also known as fish restocking). To calculate the number of fish returned to the sea through habitat restoration, we use a simplified fisheries model based on a common scientific method (zu Ermgassen et al. 2021). Projects calculate the number and type of additional fish created at one year of age in the newly restored habitat compared to unrestored habitat. The calculations are measured over a 10 year period and we apply discounts to ensure our estimates remain conservative. For assisted breeding, we use the number of fish returned at the time of release. All projects are required to follow our detailed technical guidance document and adhere to our project standards. For a copy of the technical guidance document or for more information on how we calculate fish, please email: email@example.com
How does it work?
OneFishTwoFish captures fees from individuals, couples, families and businesses through annual subscriptions and makes grants to selected projects. These projects use the proceeds to undertake conservation activities that measurably improve fish habitat and populations. The remaining fees are used to provide supporters with ocean-related news and information and to market the program to new supporters.
Do you replace fish on a like-for-like basis?
We can't always replace two fish for every fish sold or consumed on a like-for-like basis, but the initiatives supported endeavour to holistically increase fish stock in the ocean. Read our FAQ 'What's the science behind returning fish to the sea' to find out more about our methods.

Businesses purchasing a subscription receive access to project images, videos and stories from the projects, marketing collateral, logo use and invitations to special events. We also provide access to our OneFishTwoFish sustainable seafood network that connects like-minded businesses and customers.
How do I know the program is genuine?
OneFishTwoFish only works with reputable organisations with a track record in successfully completing habitat restoration and assisted breeding. We also have a government and industry advisory board to ensure projects align with the latest strategies to improve ocean health. We’re committed to transparency and will post project reports and other documentation on our website so people can review outcomes for themselves.
I believe it is entirely possible to reverse the loss of marine life within our lifetime.
Our vision is to move towards a ‘circular’ seafood economy, where fish stocks are regularly replenished, and harvest is balanced with production.
As a marine biologist, I was tired of seeing many solutions to ocean health under-resourced and buried by negative news stories. I founded Seafood Positive to create a simple solution to allow seafood lovers to participate in the restoration of the ocean.
Join us in our ambitious mission, and together, let’s make Seafood Positive!
