Who is Oceana Canada?
Oceana Canada is rebuilding abundant and biodiverse oceans. We do this by winning science-based policies that stop overfishing, habitat destruction, plastic pollution and the killing of threatened species working together with passionate ocean advocates, fishers, Indigenous Peoples, academics and the federal government. Our campaigns are delivering results: banning single-use plastics, ending the shark fin trade, making rebuilding depleted fish populations the law and protecting marine habitats. Oceana Canada is an independent charity and part of the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. A restored ocean means more seafood, thriving coastal communities and healthy ecosystems. Together, we can save the oceans and help feed the world.
