Building a Movement of Ocean Stewardship

In Ireland we only have 8.3% of our ocean protected. We want to see this increase to at least 30% by 2030.

At Fair Seas we seek to protect, conserve and restore Ireland’s unique marine environment. Our ambition is to see Ireland become a world leader in marine protection, giving our species, habitats and coastal communities the opportunity to thrive.

Revitalising Our Seas

It’s vital that the Irish government develops strong and ambitious legislation allowing for 30% of Irish waters to be protected within Marine Protected Areas, including strictly protecting 10% of Irish waters to allow life in our ocean to not only survive but recover and thrive.

Read our report that identifies 16 areas of interest for Marine Protected Area designation in Irish waters.


Sustainable Finance Report

Fair Seas estimates that €55 million is needed to adequately fund MPA designation and ongoing management until 2030, approximately €7 million would be required over the next 12 months to reach the target of fully protecting 10% of Ireland’s ocean and seas. Read our press release here.
