Reef with fish in the ocean


Despite rising temperatures and overfishing, we can still revitalize our oceans to support marine life and the billions of people who depend on it.

Protecting our oceans from overfishing is central to protecting the planet. By making our oceans healthier — with thriving fish populations, coastal communities and marine habitats — we make the planet more resilient overall.

Where we work

By focusing strategically on these parts of the world, we can make fishing practices sustainable for more than half of the global fish catch.

Partner perspective

We view EDF as a critical partner to making fishing sustainable in the Philippines.
