Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect our precious marine wildlife and vital fish stocks.
MCS' vision is for seas rich in wildlife, abundant fish stocks and pollution free beaches and bathing waters - seas that are fit for wildlife to thrive in and for people to enjoy, and seas that will support future generations with abundant resources.
Our many successes and campaigns to date include the introduction of Marine Acts to give better protection to our seas and marine life, and influencing sustainable seafood choices by major retailers and consumers through the Good Fish Guide.
We also bring together thousands of volunteers in Beachwatch to clean our beaches of litter, and campaign for Marine Protected Areas to create safe havens for wildlife and fish populations to recover.
