Steller Sea Lion: What Oceana Does

Oceana works to protect and restore the marine ecosystem by reversing the substantial decline of top predators and minimizing the impact of industrial commercial fisheries.  Oceana participates in the decision-making process both with the National Marine Fisheries Service and its advisory body, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council, and encourages the implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management principles (where a holistic approach considers the complex interactions between and among components of the marine environment) to help recover depleted fish stocks and ensure future sustainable fishery catch levels that do not compromise the availability of prey resources for Steller sea lions.
