How Healthy is the Ocean? Technology and Big Data Have the Answer

Oceans sustain life on this planet. Ocean ecosystems provide seafood that one in seven people in the world rely on for survival. But climate change, marine habitat destruction, pollution and overfishing are threatening ocean health and the critical benefits it provides.

Balancing a thriving fishing industry with ocean health presents a growing challenge. Across the globe, more than 80 percent of fish stocks are fully exploited or overfished; and many fisheries are unmanaged and unmeasured. In many instances, we lack the basic information needed to track sustainability, putting marine life, livelihoods and human health at risk.

TNC is reimagining the way our oceans are managed with technology that promotes greater sustainability and marine biodiversity, while fueling economic opportunities within a multi-billion-dollar industry.
