EDF Oceans Remote Learning Center

Of all the threats facing the oceans today, overfishing takes the greatest toll on sea life and people. Around 3 billion people worldwide rely on seafood as a key source of protein. However, nearly a third of the world’s assessed fisheries are now in deep trouble as a result of prolonged and widespread overfishing.  Without sustainable management, our fisheries face collapse and the world faces a potential food crisis.

With our suite of tools and resources, EDF’s Fishery Solutions Center aims to empower fishermen, managers, officials, industry representatives, students and other practitioners around the world to drive fisheries towards sustainable management. Our interactive e-courses, now available to the public in Beta version, provide experiential, user-driven learning on key fisheries concepts. These courses can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and for no cost. We invite you to take the courses and provide your feedback so we can continually adapt and improve our offerings.

To begin taking courses, you will need to fill out a simple and quick registration form. Once the form is submitted, you will be able to take any course immediately.
