In order to set up and execute the action plan of this national and strategic project for the improvement of the small pelagic fishery, many stakeholders (political actors, organizations, private or public companies, ...) were mobilized by providing their institutional and financial support, but also qualified human resources.
Today, the FIP benefits from the support of the most important Mauritanian institutions in the sector of fisheries resources management: MPEM (Ministry of Fisheries and Maritime Economy), IMROP (Mauritanian Institute of Oceanographic Research and Fisheries), FNP (National Fishing Federation), as well as ONISPA (National Office of Sanitary Inspection of Fisheries and Aquaculture Products). The FIP is also supported by the majority of fishmeal and fish oil factories in Mauritania, as well as by their partners in Europe.

The FIP can also count on the experience and support of the NGO Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP). The SFP operates on a global scale to reduce the environmental and social impacts of fishing and fish farming and to rebuild depleted fish stocks. The organization engages fisheries stakeholders and seafood companies throughout the supply chain to promote sustainable seafood production. SFP has a strong interest in Mauritania's fisheries, which play an important role in international trade.
