Add row

One-third of the world’s wild-caught fisheries are depleted because of overfishing, pollution and the effects of climate change. In some places, stocks have declined or collapsed due to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing — hitting the coastal communities that rely​ on seafood for food and income the hardest.

As fish populations have dwindled, the aquaculture — or fish farming — sector now accounts for more than half of worldwide seafood production. Yet some aquaculture practices have degraded coastal ecosystems, polluting the oceans with waste and destroying critical habitats.

Conservation International (CI) is addressing these issues from ocean to plate, helping to sustainably improve food security and livelihoods for the billions of people who need fisheries to survive.

We focus on coastal fisheries across nine countries to empower ocean-dependent communities to create the sustainable fisheries and aquaculture that they need to thrive.

          How we do it

          CI deploys its scientific expertise to tackle critical issues surrounding sustainable fisheries management, ecosystem health and biodiversity conservation. We also work to promote social responsibility in fisheries and aquaculture by developing best practices for seafood sourcing and reducing uncertainty in the private sector.

          Edit Text:

          Our goal is to enhance human well-being while reducing the adverse impacts of fishing on the environment. In the Pacific, we work with partners to improve local food security and management of tuna, using innovations in technology and harvesting methods as well as regional monitoring and surveillance. In small-scale fisheries we implement governance reform and market-based solutions, providing the tools, incentives and financing to help transition fisheries from overexploitation to sustainability.

          CI’s aquaculture program aims to transform farmed seafood, focusing on demonstrating sustainable fish farming in selected areas. Our work emphasizes sustainable, low-impact, high-productivity aquaculture; restoring overexploited and endangered aquatic species and no net loss of coastal ecosystems; and transforming markets and supply chains to increase demand for sustainably farmed products.
