Oceana works internationally to direct policy-oriented and science-based campaigns that help save the oceans and feed the world. We advocate for increasing marine biodiversity, restoring ocean abundance and protecting habitat by winning policy victories in countries that deliver nearly 29 percent of the world’s wild marine fish catch.
Since 2001, Oceana has won over 225 victories for the oceans and protected nearly 4 million square miles of ocean habitat. Our science-based campaigns have specific goals and deadlines — enabling us to create real, measurable change for the oceans. From stopping bottom trawling in sensitive habitat areas to protecting sea turtles from commercial fishing gear, Oceana has been a leader in protecting and restoring marine biodiversity and abundance.
