Ocean Watch Australia Ltd

Advancing Sustainability in the Australian Seafood Industry

$
OCEANWATCH AUSTRALIA IS A NATIONAL NOT-FOR-PROFIT ENVIRONMENTAL COMPANY THAT WORKS TO ADVANCE SUSTAINABILITY IN THE AUSTRALIAN SEAFOOD INDUSTRY. 

 

OceanWatch’s key activities involve:

  • enhancing fish habitats and improving water quality in estuaries and coastal environments;
  • working with industry and local communities to minimise environmental impacts;
  • introducing industry and communities to sustainable technologies and behaviours

 

Since its establishment in 1989, OceanWatch Australia has managed and administered a broad range of successful projects to improve environmental practices, protect threatened marine species, reduce by-catch, introduce sustainable technologies, change behaviours and restore important marine habitats.

To achieve these positive outcomes, OceanWatch Australia works in partnership with the Australian seafood industry, federal and state governments, natural resource managers, private enterprise and local communities.

 

HOW WILL THE FUNDS BE USED?

We will use the funds to assist us to run practical programs that move the Australian Seafood Industry towards environmental sustainability by:

  • Working closely with the fishing industry on environmental best practice and responsible fishing, to ensure healthy productive marine systems are maintained;
  • Defending fish habitats and aquatic ecosystems through advocacy and education; 
  • Restoring damaged and degraded aquatic habitats and improving the environment where fish live and upon which fishers survive.
