“Let’s save the oceans and feed the world.” We’ve been saying that a lot lately, but now we have company.

Last week, Bloomberg Philanthropies committed a historic $53 million over five years to improve international fisheries management. The project will help deliver healthy oceans to our future and ensure that 700 million people can eat a healthy seafood meal every day. It’s a necessary intervention for the oceans at a time when overfishing threatens our food supply and we face the challenge of feeding 9 billion people in the not-so-distant future.
