Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in countries that govern much of the world’s marine life. 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 also feed hundreds of millions of people and have the capacity to provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day. The oceans are in trouble and 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. Oceana is dedicated to advocating for science based fishery management and restoring the world’s oceans. Learn more at: oceana.org
