An "Audacious" Ocean Conservation Program

"Fish Forever is a story of hope for the world’s oceans and those who depend on them.

"The demand for fish – for food and income – exceeds what the oceans can provide. Science shows this. Fishers experience it every day. Fortunately solutions exist.
"The Environmental Defense Fund, Rare and the Sustainable Fisheries Group at the University of California, Santa Barbara have come together to empower the world’s poorest coastal communities to not just change the way they fish today, but to Fish Forever.

"This global initiative realizes the potential of a comprehensive, locally led conservation opportunity, where people can simultaneously strengthen local economies, improve food security and protect nature."
