We need your help today to make sure the final policy offers the strongest ocean protection possible!
President Obama recognizes that protecting our oceans must be a top priority. He created a task force to develop a national policy that will better protect living ocean resources.
I testified before the task force as part of the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative, and many of the priorities I identified are reflected in these new recommendations. I urged the panel to support a comprehensive plan as the best way to overcome the enormous challenges facing our oceans and Great Lakes: pollution, habitat loss, and climate change.
Our new report, Turning the Tide: The State of Seafood, recognizes that the challenges facing the oceans are great but—with determination, thoughtful policy and meaningful legislation—we can turn the tide and restore the health of the oceans.
