Our Commitment

Blue Ventures

Blue Ventures’ mission is to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. Working in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, Blue Ventures vision is for coastal communities to effectively manage their natural resources, enriching local livelihoods and sustaining healthy marine environments for generations to come.
In Madagascar, Blue Ventures pioneered the use of temporary octopus fisheries closures to demonstrate the environmental and economic benefits of local management. This conservation model helped to inspire the creation of locally managed marine areas across Madagascar, and Blue Venture is now sharing its model with partners in East Africa and Southeast Asia.
