UMITO Partners


Envisioning sustainable
and equitable ocean economy with fishing communities

UMITO Partners Inc., is a team of passionate professionals that work hand-in-hand with fisheries and fishery communities in partnership with a diverse network of like minded stakeholders to grand design equitability and sustainability solutions that tackle not only environmental issues but also social and economic challenges that exist in fishery communities.

Socio-economic and enviromental challenges are critical themes for fishery communities to maintain sustainability but they often have little access to the support they need. As such, they have had no other choice but to operate their fishery without being able to solve their fundamental challenges.

Our approach starts with listening carefully about their needs and identifying gaps that exist for sustainability improvements in enviromental, economic, and social elements.

As embedded in our name UMITO (Umi-toh) meaning "with the ocean" in Japanese, by parterning with fishers as well as diverse group of stakeholders that share a common vision for a sustainable and equitable ocean economy, we co-design solutions toward a future where both people and the ocean can thrive in harmony.
