Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries

Today’s global society has a responsibility to conserve ocean ecosystems and sustainably manage fish stocks for future generations. In collaboration with partners in Canada and around the world, the UBC Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries is working towards a world in which the oceans are healthy and their resources are used sustainably and equitably.
