International Ocean Policy

In the absence of an overarching international governance system for regulating ocean resources, particularly in areas beyond national jurisdiction, a number of treaties, organizations and intergovernmental instruments serve to manage fisheries and protect habitat.

Pew offers its science-based research and policy expertise in order to aid decision makers and relevant stakeholders in designing and adopting appropriate management mechanisms and policy decisions to ensure the conservation and long-term sustainability of marine resources, and the ocean.
