Our Actions

The Coastal 500 aims to dramatically change the way communities protect their coastal waters and influence the way entire nations and regions manage their fisheries.


Collective action and leadership serve as a motivating force for effective change. Coastal 500 members are leaders in their communities and work together to influence stakeholders in the fisheries sector that leads to positive shifts in public opinion, political will,  and government policies. The Action Guidebook provides a suite of concrete actions Coastal 500 members can take to further their commitment to specific programmatic shifts, securing policy commitments and mobilizing financial allocations for coastal fisheries.
