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.
We empower fishing communities around the world to improve their own livelihoods while caring for the ocean. For greater sustainability, we also develop and seed innovative new technologies into the marketplace.
