One Minute Dive

Discover the world’s oceans and the people who study them, one minute at a time. Our One Minute Dive film series highlights the world-class Pew marine fellows and their important work to address ocean threats and challenges. Dive with these scientists in the fiords of Chilean Patagonia, visit the seagrass meadows of Malaysia, or take a stroll on the seafloor with an Indonesian walking shark. We’ll post a new video each month.

Watch the Fastest Fish in the Ocean Fly By On Top of a Car
The sailfish—a type of marlin— is the fastest fish in the ocean. These fish move at an average speed of 40mph—that’s a whopping seven times faster than Olympic athletes swim. Pew marine fellow Steve Palumbi wants to see what a marlin looks like going 40 mph. Watch as he illustrates—on land—the speed of the fastest fish in the ocean. Plus, find out how these amazing animals are able to thrive in the deep and find food despite swimming at a such blinding speed.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
