The Trygg Mat Foundation was a Norwegian foundation working on sustainable seafood production. The main focus of the organisation increasingly became illegal fishing and in 2014 it was decided that a new entity, Trygg Mat Tracking (TMT), should be initiated to take on this particular focus. The work of TMT can be found at www.tm-tracking.org. TMT has also taken over the ownership and management of the combined IUU vessel website, www.iuu-vessels.org. TMT is maintaining the webpages of Trygg Mat Foundation for public interest. All contact links from this website will be directed to TMT.
