Coordination Mechanisms

Leveraging our team's expertise in international development and sustainability, we are spearheading the implementation of a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) aimed at establishing the National Tunisian Crab Council. This initiative seeks to foster collaboration among all crab suppliers, ensuring adherence to size catch regulations and conservation measures, particularly during the crucial mating season.


We developed a transparent tracing system where all our products are traceable using a QR code, any customer can enter the lot number and get all information about the product and its origins, date of catch and the name of the boat. This initiative is part of our commitment to combat illegal and unregulated fishing in Africa.

Additionally, Carthage Crabs, through its involvement with the NFI Crab Council, is driving the development of science-based regulatory frameworks for Blue Swimming Crab fisheries, implementing successful sustainability measures and endorsing uniform data collection methods. As a leader in promoting healthy crab fisheries in the Mediterranean, they emphasize market-based sustainability requirements and aim to make sustainability appealing to fishermen while exploring new opportunities in undiscovered crab grounds across southern Europe.

Commitment to SDG14

Carthage Crabs is dedicated to responsible and sustainable crab sourcing, particularly in Tunisia, where the Blue Swimming Crab is considered an invasive species, posing a threat to local ecosystems and fishing communities. Founders Amir Ben Ameur and Sarah Schoengood recognized the need for solutions and quickly established operations, providing essential support to the local fishing community. Through initiatives such as distributing over 15,000 sustainable crab cages and educating fishermen on responsible practices, Carthage Crabs has helped transform crab fishing into a thriving industry while prioritizing sustainability. Now, the company is focused on advocating for conservation policies and persuading local actors t to recognize the crab as a valuable resource.
