Protecting marine ecosystems and livelihoods

Our ocean covers 70% of our planet. It is a primary source of food and income for some 3.5 billion people around the world. Yet, our ocean is being pushed to the brink.

Overfishing and illegal fishing is leaving our ocean on the edge of total collapse, and as operators look to plunder our exhausted ocean further, many resort to slave labour - enforced by violence - to keep costs down.

EJF is working to protect the ocean, end illegal fishing and stamp out the human rights abuses driven by this illicit activity. By doing so we aim to protect the millions of people that depend on our ocean and for the magnificent and varied wildlife that call them home.
