Founded in 2001, Oceana is the world’s largest ocean advocacy organization focused solely on restoring the resilience, diversity, and abundance of marine ecosystems to ensure that our oceans are a significant source of wild-caught fish that can help feed the world. 

We achieve measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
