Council Fire completed a consulting project for the Marine Stewardship Council, a London-based nonprofit dedicated to improving global fisheries practices. The project involved conducting a pre-assessment of five fisheries in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States to encourage others to join the program. Council Fire's involvement spanned the three phases of the pre-assessment project, which included information gathering, forming an advisory council, and recommending improvement strategies for the fisheries. The engagement, which began in April 2017, remains ongoing, with $60,000 invested so far.

For an environmental nonprofit's South American Oceans Program, Council Fire provided strategy and consulting services aimed at improving the program's work strategy in the region. The scope of their involvement included finalizing strategy documents for fundraising and communication purposes, advising on sustainable supply chains, and conducting a market study for fishing terminals globally. This study aimed to determine the cost-benefit analysis of building a new fishing terminal in Chile. The contract with Council Fire ran from June 2019 to June 2020, with an investment between $40,000 and $50,000.
