THE GLOBAL

OCEAN CRISIS
The world’s oceans are
home to an incredibly
diverse array of life and
are vital to human health,
livelihood, and culture.
of our oxygen
comes from
the ocean.
50-70%
The ocean is 

the #1 source of
protein for over 

1 billion people.
Fishing is the MAIN 

livelihood for over
200people
MILLION
Despite these rich
benefits, oceans,
marine wildlife, and
their ecosystems
continue to be damaged
by human activities.
e.g. tuna, swordfish, halibut, cod, flounder
90% of big fish are gone due to overfishing.
Toxins from plastic degradation are eaten
by marine animals and can lead to illness,
death, or end up in our seafood.
Less than 2% of our oceans are protected
even though the ocean accounts for 

71% of the planet.
- SYLVIA EARLE
“
”
Our actions over the next
10 years will determine the
state of the ocean for the
next 10,000 years.
CRITICAL
ISSUES
OVERFISHING
Overfishing occurs when fish are
caught faster than they can reproduce
to replace themselves.
Destroys marine life’s physical environment.
Puts marine animals at risk of extinction.
Contributes to ocean pollution from boat waste.

environmentAL EFFECTS
Increased cost 

of seafood and
decreased variety.
Loss of jobs
in the fishing
industry.
Decreased tourism
from loss of sea
life and recreation.
How it affects US
How WE CAN HELP
Eat sustainably
• Bluefin tuna
• Chilean seabass
• Imported shrimp
• Orange roughy
• Shark
x Avoid:Fish Finder Fish 2 fork
Online list and rating
system for sustainable
seafood by the Marine
Conservation Society.
Website dedicated to
rating restaurants on
their sustainable 

food options.
LEARN MORE > LEARN MORE >
PLASTIC POLLUTION
Massive amounts of plastic we use end
up in the ocean.
Plastic waste not only entangles and kills
sea life but it also makes its way up the
food chain until it ends up on our plate.
environmentAL EFFECTS
animals die each year
from eating or becoming
tangled in plastic.
73.9M LBS
of plastic are spread
throughout the world’s
ocean gyres.
400-1000 YRS
is the time it can take for plastic
bags to decompose. The chemical
residues remain for years after.
100,000
1 2 3
HOW IT AFFECTS US
Plastic toxins move up
the food chain and 

end up on our plate.
Damages our water
systems leading to huge
costs for taxpayers.
Lost marine tourism
from dirty beaches
and oceans.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Bring your
own mug
Refill a water bottle For less packagingInstead of using
disposable cups
DON’T BUY
bottled water
USE NON-PLASTIC
CONTAINERS
e.g. glass or paper
Focus on reducing and reusing
BUY IN BULK
EXPANDING 

PROTECTED OCEAN AREAS
It is crucial that we begin protecting
vulnerable ocean habitats.
Protection can come in the form of marine
protected areas (MPAs), national marine
sanctuaries, and world heritage marine sites.
64% of the ocean is not part of any nation’s jurisdiction and
are vulnerable to overfishing and habitat destruction.
1000% is how much marine life can grow in
mass when protected in marine reserves.

ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
50% of Earth’s oxygen is provided by the
ocean’s phytoplankton.
