Oceana

Oceana works to shield fish, marine mammals, and other aquatic life from the deleterious effects of pollution and industrial fishing.

Washington, DC – EIN 510401308  oceana.org

Our Vision
Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy, and abundant as they once were.

Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world’s marine life.

Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our offices around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes that will help make our oceans more bio diverse and abundant.

Oceans cover 71 percent of the globe, and they are as important to us as they are vast. Our oceans are home to most of the life on our planet and play a central role in the world’s natural systems, like regulating our climate and absorbing carbon dioxide. They provide livelihoods to countless fishermen and others around the world. They also feed hundreds of millions of people and have the capacity to provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day. Unfortunately, the oceans are in trouble ? scientists report that the amount of fish caught from the oceans began declining ? for the first time in recorded history ? just a few decades ago. Fortunately, we know how to fix things. Science-based fishery management ? which establishes science-based catch limits, reduces bycatch and protects habitat ? is helping the oceans rebound and recover where it is established. Oceana is dedicated to advocating for science-based fishery management and restoring the world’s oceans.
