We focus on promoting sustainable fisheries, safeguarding sensitive marine habitats, and protecting vulnerable marine biodiversity.  Pew supports and applies the best science and analyses to inform policy solutions at all levels, from local and national governments to intergovernmental fora.

    The increasing industrialization of our oceans threatens the fragile health of marine ecosystems. When poorly planned or managed, drilling for oil and natural gas in federal waters developing aquaculture and building wind, wave and tidal energy facilities can damage America's underwater environment.
