AIDA uses legal advocacy to ensure that marine resources are being harvested sustainably, and that threatened ecosystems and marine species are being adequately protected. We work to strengthen laws that promote sustainable aquaculture and limit resource extraction in protected marine areas. We also develop Spanish-language materials about legal approaches to marine protection for use by institutions, organizations, and communities.
