  1. Engagement in the Fishery/Aquaculture Improvement Project (FIP/AIP) should be relative to the size of the business
  2. The Member should communicate externally their business' role and work in engaging with the Fishery/Aquaculture Improvement Project;
  3. The member should be transparent about the commitment the business is making, the goal, and how it will be achieved
  4. Member should ensure their business has accurate and up-to-date documentation to prove their engagement
  5. Members should commit to a timeframe for achieving milestones within the FIP/AIP engagement
  6. Members should review progress of the projects regularly.
The guidance document should provide use examples and case studies of existing and past FIP/AIPs, along with references to other organisations’ work on FIPs and AIPs.
