Mission 2011: Saving the Oceans

The Challenge: Develop the best possible solution to save global fish populations and marine ecosystems from collapse and provide sustainable global fishing.

Background:  The use of overly efficient fishing technology, the lack of sufficient scientific data regarding the oceans, the ignorance and apathy of humanity, and the insufficient implementation of existing maritime agreements is resulting in a decrease in the biodiversity of the ocean, changes to ocean chemistry, changes in the genetic makeup of marine populations, disturbances to food webs, collapse of fish stocks, and irreparable damage to marine ecosystems, the fishing industry, and all people dependent on fish.
