We’re a non-profit organisation
Our focus is to find solutions to improve fish health by protecting marine ecosystems from toxic compounds, by reducing ocean debris along our docks, beaches and coasts.
We work with a broad spectrum of solutions including technology, research-based, elevating public awareness through exhibitions and educations and embark on expeditions to learn and gather further research.
We teach and involve all generations through workshops, lectures and Sea Hubs on what is best for our Ocean and the coastal environments we cherish. We pass on knowledge and highlight awareness of the problem we all face today. We engage and create the feeling of adventure through own unique perspective while focusing on having fun. Through 2017 we had several WORKSHOPS integrated with our OCEAN+HUMAN events and AFTER SEA gatherings. SEA HUB network workshops has been YEAR 2018, learnin more on marine debris and where the technology industry can become more environmental. Our workshops inspire new companies to develop that will reduce marine debris, produce better packaging products, develop kinder technology all for improving all lifes wellbeing on this planet.
By discovering and improving necessary research methods is key to healthier solutions. With our network in the field daily covering various coastal regions, we can help take the samples and tests which are required to push research further. We have partnered with EU and United Nations Environment certified labs worldwide, amongst locally is IRIS which we are excited for their new microplastic research lab. Fish in relations to microplastic and debris contamination is amongst our motivation for more research. 2018 is aiming in the right direction. Learn more about the research in our SEA HUB meetings.
Showcasing art “By the Sea” involves and informs the public without an activist approach. Art can open minds, motivates and helps society find better solutions. We host art workshops together with kinder gardens, schools, institutions, organizations and companies in addition to staging our own exhibitions. In 2017 EU commission ERASUS supported ten danish art students from Økologiske Produksjonskole, helping at our OCEAN+HUMAN event and held an amazing art exhibition.
In August 2017 we had talented trash artist from Alaska, Elizabeth Roberts, built the are most amazing fish and marine ecology art out of marine waste. She exhibited at Fiskepirterminalen in the harbor of Stavanger with international artists, Italian Elena Redaelli, Tasmanian Maris Molin, Spanish Mara Sola, holding workshops at the exhibit space making jellyfish out of bottles.
Further holding an art online auction.
If you enjoy technology, design or gadgets. If you are a designer, architect, engineer, techie, electrician, builder or a material guru. We need your genius. This could become your venture to invent a product to help cure marine debris. Just gaining knowledge and taking back to your workplace is helpful. We meet monthly for project groups with solutions:
Fish Tech, on solutions inventions and environmental friendly technology.
SSF Kids Education, clean ups, all about fish and pollution harming the ocean.
Eco Ocean that focuses on packaging harming fish on land and how to take the trash that is in the ocean. Get in touch to join on in any of these groups !
We embark on expeditions to learn about what we use and throw away and how it impacts on our Oceans and ecosystems. How does the debris affect our delicate marine life and ecosystems. Expeditions help us to explore and research fish and marine life. It gets participants, scientists and biologists closer to the source they are researching to witness the effects first-hand. in 2017 we held an OCEAN+HUMAN exhibit with EU commission Art Student visiting from Denmark learning about marine debris issues and expressing about it, it was shown @Studio Stavanger. We also had an exhibit in August - September 2018 with 4 talented artists from worldwide @Fiskepirterminalen in Stavanger.
We host and participate in events both public and private we call OCEAN+HUMAN, bringing the ocean closer to humanity. The events we had through 2017 included eco market educating the alternative choice, marine litter art, art workshop with kids, technology testing, research all in correlation with taking up trash from harbors, including Svankevigå, Vågen, Sølyst in Stavanger.
We manage and do many cleanups, the best time to stay alert is often after storms when the ocean brings the trash to land. Many clean ups are done by small dive teams. Where the fish roam we are there to clean for them. Stay updated on the event through 2018. Dedication and contribution does create historical change and differences in communities ways!!
Our team of captains are diverse and passionate about the sea, the open ocean and all the lies beneath its surface. We're scientists, engineers, artists, designers, great outdoor enthusiasts as well as architects and techies.Meet our captains
