One of the world’s leading ocean advocacy non-profit organizations, Oceana, believes that to save the oceans is to feed the world, and that full restoration could help feed 1 billion people a healthy seafood meal every day. Founded in 2001, their goal is to restore the oceans to their former abundance by stopping marine pollution, promoting responsible commercial fishing and protecting endangered sea life, such as the overfishing of species like Bluefin Tuna. Floridians eat twice as much fish as the average American, which is why Oceana’s monitoring of seafood mislabeling in South Florida is an integral part of their Stop Seafood Fraud initiative. Their investigations have shown that up to a third of the seafood tested was mislabeled in some way, undermining conservation-minded consumers and fisheries. Though it is an uphill battle, to date they have protected a remarkable 1.2 million+ square miles of ocean; Oceana.org.
