To protect healthy oceans and fisheries through collaborative problem-solving.

How we accomplish our mission

Instead of cherrypicking easy “wins”, we seek root-cause solutions. We lean into the problems that matter most, prioritizing the greatest threats to the ocean’s capacity to sustain abundant, healthy fisheries and ecosystems. We work as bridge-builders, advisors, educators and problem-solvers. We link people who depend on the oceans with experts in science, policy, and business to develop solutions that last. As conveners and guides, we bring together divergent voices to build common ground, identify constructive approaches, and foster new tools for stewardship. Our largest program, Global Ocean Health, concentrates on carbon pollution and its multiple consequences to healthy seas and coastal communities.
