Welcome to OpenOceans Global!
Welcome to OpenOceans Global! We are a non-profit organization dedicated to "Linking People to the World's Oceans™" through sharing information that will result in more informed decisions.
From various ocean communities, to jobs, to ocean information, to the best in ocean culture, events and news, OpenOceans Global will link viewers to the ocean in all of its facets.
Our goal is to build an international ocean community focused on aggregating the world's ocean data and creatively presenting that data online using advanced visualization technologies. Learn more in the Our Work tab under "About Us." ________________________
