About The Oceans Program
We work to find constructive solutions to the most critical problems threatening the world's marine environments. At the national, regional, and international levels, our team of scientists, attorneys and economists are working with fishermen to establish fair and sensible limits on their catch that will allow fisheries to recover. We also work to improve the health of the oceans via innovative and durable solutions to today's toughest fishery management challenges. We focus on fisheries in the waters of the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean and Europe and are beginning to implement a strategy to influence fisheries reform globally to ensure more fish in the water, more food on the plate, and more prosperous communities.
