Commitment to Action

Save the Oceans to Feed the World

Commitment by

Oceana

In 2014, Oceana committed to working with the national governments in Brazil and the Philippines to support fishing communities by strengthening large-scale fisheries management. Oceana's commitment focuses on sustainable fishing practices and creating regulatory closures of fishing areas during the spawning season. By working to end destructive fishing practices, Oceana seeks to increase the availability of fish for catch by small-scale fishers, who are struggling in part as consequence of the competition of industrial fleets, while also working to improve the overall health of the ocean's ecosystem.
