Current Initiatives

We capitalize on Stanford's deep expertise in ocean science and in the main other disciplines crucial to solving ocean problems including engineering, computer science, political sciene, design and business. 

Building a community of researchers investigating the many connections between oceans and the global food system. 
Developing approaches and tools to support the small island developing states of the Pacific in their efforts to integrate development and conservation.
Leading an effort to accelerate action on illegal fishing and human rights violations through linked efforts on three fronts: data, supply chains and policy.
Creating a suite of models and data analyses, starting in the Arctic, to better understand how multiple threats impact the ocean – and how potential management and policy options can mitigate these risks.
Using human-centered design approaches to identify new technologies that can help fishing communities manage their resources.
