THE FISH MARKET
(Re)connecting fish harvesters to local consumers.
At The Fish Market, we envision a future where our coastal communities are thriving, our people is food secure, our ocean is healthy and our fisheries are sustainable. Our mission is to connect fish harvesters to local consumers through a mobile application to enhance access to and availability of locally caught, sustainably harvested fish and seafood in Newfoundland and Labrador and elsewhere. Get in touch today to learn more.
The Fish Market is a startup social enterprise focused on increasing availability of and access to locally caught, sustainably harvested fish and seafood by connecting fish harvesters to local consumers in Newfoundland and Labrador. Founded by Mirella Leis, an Oceanographer & Geographer with a passion for Sustainable Fisheries, today we count with the support of a team of four web designers and developers and ten partner organizations with funding from Ocean Wise through a Youth Ocean Action Grant.

"Increasing access to locally caught, sustainably harvested fish and seafood by connecting fish harvesters to local consumers "
The Fish Market
At The Fish Market, we believe that achieving sustainable fisheries starts from (re)connecting to our heritage and our seafood. Our team of web designers and web developers is preparing a mobile app that is innovative in its purpose, modern in its look without losing sight of tradition, while also being user-friendly. Through the app, fishers can directly sell their catch to local consumers, increasing their revenue while contributing to food sovereignty, and consumers can connect with fishers, increasing their access to locally caught seafood while contributing to fisheries sustainability.
We bring together knowledge and experience in Oceanography, Marine Social Sciences
and Project Management alongside Web Design & Development expertise
The Fish Market is only possible with the financial support of organizations
that believe in our idea and, just like us, want to see it come to life.
