Mission

Looking up to sea surfaceThe Fisheries Training Programme offers applied postgraduate training for fisheries professionals, coordinates targeted short courses in partner countries and administers postgraduate scholarships to former fellows.

Through cooperation with our extensive network of partners, we aspire to further Iceland’s contribution to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals by promoting the sustainable use and management of living aquatic resources in less developed countries.

FTPs objectives are to strengthen capacities by providing excellence in training, education, and research opportunities, by facilitating the professional growth of fisheries professionals and by placing cooperation, capacity building, knowledge-sharing and research at the forefront of our mission.
