The Foundation considers Project Related Investments (PRIs) that can provide a return of capital and a nominal investment return. We strongly prefer individual transactions backed by experienced management teams with a track record of success in their field of investment.

Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to: fisheries management, fishing rights and quotas, aquaculture, and other ocean related projects. The Foundation may invest up to $100,000 per PRI.

Recent PRIs include:

  • National Geographic Partners LLC – disbursed funds for production of a children’s sea book and a sea atlas by Dr. Sylvia Earle and National Geographic

  • Catch Invest – commitment to loan facility to acquire a stake in the New England scallop fishing quota
