The Fund

The South African Fisheries Development Fund (the Fund) is a registered non-profit company in terms of the Companies Act 71 of 2008. It was established by Brimstone Investment Corporation Limited (Brimstone) and Sea Harvest Corporation (Proprietary) Limited (Sea Harvest) to empower local fishing communities and promote access into the South African fishing sector.

The vision of the Fund is to assist small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) and small scale fishing communities with their development by providing business support; skills development; accidental death or disability cover and alternative economic opportunities.

The Fund seeks to invest R100 million over the next ten years with an initial focus on supporting small scale fishing communities over the next decade.
