Oceana Canada partners with researchers, non-governmental organizations, the federal government, Indigenous Peoples and the fishing industry to study sensitive marine habitats and advocate for their protection. This is essential for the future of our planet: it supports healthy, productive ecosystems and the recovery of depleted fish populations that coastal communities depend on.

Since 2017, Oceana Canada has been conducting expeditions that combine science, technology, community engagement and advocacy with the wonder of ocean exploration. Using technology such as livestreaming, we bring Canadians along with us as we explore the ocean and collect data that helps direct how best to protect it. 

Although a great deal of progress has been made recently, less than eight per cent of Canada’s ocean territory is protected. More needs to be done to ensure that future generations have healthy, abundant oceans.
