Message from CEO
Responsibility to future generations
Our first responsibility is to maintain connections between the environment, the economy and society for future generations. The ocean is a common asset for mankind and a resource we borrow from future generations. We plan our activities with the vision of future generations enjoying the benefits of the ocean. We strive to maintain a high level of integrity—and are committed to fair and ethical judgment and action.
Responsibility to our partners
Our second responsibility is to our partner organizations; governments, corporations, and philanthropic organizations that are committed to fulfilling their social responsibility to future generations. By understanding the potential needs of partner organizations, participating in related innovative fields and designing regional solutions based on international standards, we exceed our partners’ expectations.
Responsibility to our employees
Our third responsibility is to our colleagues with whom we collaborate to achieve our common goals. We aim for every employee and team to find joy in their work and to support each other and enhance our strengths. Our employees work hard to support their families. We support that by ensuring safe working conditions.

Theory of Change
The ocean will continue to provide us with its abundant gifts as long as we continue to utilize it on a scale that does not outpace its rate of regeneration.
Unfortunately, around 30% of the world’s primary fisheries resources are currently overfished, and around 60% are on the verge of being overfished. It is clear that fisheries are operating well beyond levels that are sustainable.
Coupled with other complex challenges we are facing such as the rise in seawater temperatures due to climate change, the acidification of seawater, IUU fisheries that undermine the philosophy of resource management, human trafficking and modern slavery, as well as coastal development and marine pollution, it seems that we are quickly approaching a precipice.
