The Plimsoll

The plimsoll, FCA’s mark, is the symbol traditionally found painted on the sides of ships to to indicate the maximum safe load for any ship under varied sea conditions. ¬†Inspired by the plimsoll and the life of its creator Samuel Plimsoll, FCA uses this symbol as a representation of our organization’s goal of finding balance between fish and farm, urban and rural, agriculture and environmentalism, nonprofit and private industry. ¬†Like the plimsoll that balances a ship’s draft and freeboard, FCA hopes to demonstrate that by being respectful of potentially opposing viewpoints, a better outcome will be achieved for all.
