The Global Ocean Commission has been on a voyage of discovery about the global ocean – its importance, its peril and its potential. It listened to experts from science, academia, business and NGOs and identified eight proposals that show what needs to be done to stimulate a cycle of ocean recovery.


1. UN Sustainable Development Goal for the Ocean
2. Governing the High Seas
3. No More Overfishing
4. Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing
5. Plastics – Keeping them out of the Ocean
6. Offshore Oil and Gas
7. Global Ocean Accountability Board
8. Creating a High Seas Regeneration Zone
