The State of Seafood Report

Our oceans are increasingly affected by human activities—primarily the ways we catch and farm seafood. Today, fish and other populations of ocean wildlife, from turtles to seabirds, are imperiled. Yet we appear to have reached a turning point, with many signs of hope for the future. Fishermen and consumers, businesses and governments recognize the threats. They are charting a new course, and cooperating in new ways.

Read our report, Turning the Tide: The State of Seafood, to learn more about the threats to our oceans, as well as the significant steps being taken to preserve what remains and restore what we've lost.
