Donate Today to support Fisheries
From the billions of people around the world who rely on fish for food, to the local businesses, chefs, and fishermen whose way of life depends on abundant fish populations, the potential consequences of overfishing are severe. Ocean Conservancy has spent 20 years advocating for sustainable fisheries, fighting to restore the ocean’s bounty and strengthen coastal economies. The passage and subsequent strengthening of the historic Magnuson-Stevens Act in 1976 has had a massive impact, helping us rebuild fish populations, but we’re not out of the deep end yet—overfishing and ocean acidification continue to devastate fish populations, from cod, to rockfish, to sharks. Your support is critical to preserve a healthy ocean and the food it provides for the future.
