Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Oceana is rebuilding abundant and biodiverse oceans by winning science-based policies in countries that control one third of the world’s wild fish catch. With more than 200 victories that stop overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution and killing of threatened species like turtles and sharks, Oceana’s campaigns are delivering results. A restored ocean means that one billion people can enjoy a healthy seafood meal, every day, forever. Together, we can save the oceans and help feed the world. To learn more, visit

If you can see it, you can change it. SkyTruth hopes this illustration of global fishing activity, made available on a public map for the first time, will prompt people to ask questions about how well our ocean and its living resources are being managed and protected. Founded in 2001, SkyTruth’s mission is to make the world visible to the people that live in it. We’re driven by the belief that better transparency leads to better management and better outcomes for people and the environment. To learn more, check out what we do and how we work at
