Do you have a favorite fish dish? If you’re like 3.1 billion people around the world, the ocean supplies your primary source of protein. Twelve percent of the world’s jobs depend on fisheries.

But around the world, fisheries face challenges. Overfishing and undermanagement mean that food and jobs for billions are under threat.

The September 15–16 Our Ocean conference brings together world leaders with a goal: Find ways to end unsustainable fishing and support countries looking to preserve and grow their harvest of fish.
