Mission
OUR APPROACH

Our goal is to benefit communities while restoring fish populations and habitats. The Waitt Institute endeavors to ensure ecologically, economically, and socially

 sustainable use of ocean resources. The Institute partners with governments committed to developing and implementing comprehensive, science-based, community-driven solutions for sustainable ocean management.

 

Our approach is to partner with governments, engage stakeholders, facilitate the policymaking process, and build capacity for effective implementation and long-term success. We provide expertise, funding, and tools to develop and implement effective ocean plans.
