  • About

    Ocean Trust is an award-winning ocean conservation foundation building science, conservation and industry partnerships for the sustainability of the oceans. Ocean Trust has a solid track record in building fishery, wildlife and marine conservation partnerships across diverse interests in the public and private sector achieving many significant milestones and receiving six national awards for its work.
    Ocean Trust is a long-standing, recognized partner in the restoration of endangered marine wildlife. With support from Ocean Trust members, we have provided support to the Bi-National Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle Recovery Program for the past twenty years. Sea turtle conservation is important to many trawl and longline fisheries which interact with sea turtles. Our funding keeps restoration and nest protection programs going and supplies equipment such as solar panels for restoration camps. At the same time, our independent assessments on shrimp fishery compliance with US Turtle Excluder Devise (TED) requirements provided additional documentation for the re-certification of foreign shrimp exports to the US.
    Environment - Enhancing coastal habitat critical to fish and marine wildlife.

    Without habitat, there are no fisheries. That is why Ocean Trust has a long history of managing and supporting projects to restore coastal areas for a broad range of fishery and other estuarine dependent marine species. Ocean Trust participates in Restore America?s Estuaries conferences with presentations and exhibits on many ongoing projects .
