The Sustainable Fisheries Group (SFG), founded in 2006 by marine ecologist Steve Gaines and economist Chris Costello, is a collaboration between the Marine Science Institute and the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara. SFG develops innovative science and applies it to real-world challenges to improve the sustainability of marine resources and coastal communities around the world.
