Who We Are:
Carl Safina & Blue Ocean
At Blue Ocean Institute, we seek to inspire a deeper connection with nature, in everyone touched by an ocean.
Led by ocean conservation pioneer and MacArthur fellow, Dr. Carl Safina, we work to create a more knowledgeable constituency for conservation.
Through Carl’s books, articles and PBS TV series, and Blue Ocean’s educational programs and research, we show how nature, community, the economy and prospects for peace are all intertwined. More

Bluefin Tuna Proposal
For sixty years, U.S. fishermen targeting yellowfin tuna and swordfish in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean with longlines have been capturing and killing severely depleted bluefin tuna. The National Marine Fisheries Service recently proposed a new rule to reduce this wasteful catch of bluefin. This rule is a step in the right direction and COULD help bluefin tuna–BUT only if the rule is strengthened.
You can help! NMFS is accepting public comment until December 10, 2013.
