Waitt Institute Overview
Collaborating with local governments and coastal communities…
The Waitt Institute endeavors to ensure ecologically, economically, and culturally sustainable use of ocean resources, for this and future generations. The Institute collaborates with local governments and coastal communities to design comprehensive, data-driven ocean zoning and fisheries management strategies. Our approach engages stakeholders, benefits coastal livelihoods, and restores fish populations and habitats. The Institute provides technical expertise in marine ecology, mapping, policy, law, socioeconomics, and communications, and works with local organizations to build capacity for effective implementation and long-term success.
