About OCN

OCN is on a mission to unite the world’s ocean data sets, create accessible products to incentivize data collection and promote a regenerative blue economy.

Right now we have a very arduous and manual process regarding how we collect data and understand the ocean. It's actually easier to go to outer space to collect data than it is at the bottom of the ocean. It doesn't have to be.

OCN is the missing link that unites the world's ocean data sets and creates products and technology to encourage practical citizen data collection. We are not just creating ways to combine and collect more data, we are designing products, systems and communities to collect the necessary data to interpret overall ocean health. Only the right data can help us better understand the threats to our ocean and create real, trackable solutions.

We need your help to protect 30 percent of the global ocean by 2030.
