THE OCEAN SEA FOUNDATION SUPPORTS RESEARCHERS
WITH SPECIAL INTERESTS IN THE OCEAN AND SEAS
The Ocean Sea Foundation is concerned about our future generations.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION
The Ocean Sea Foundation’s 501(c)(3) mission is to support, strengthen, and promote those organizations dedicated to reversing the trend of destruction of ocean and sea environments around the world. We focus our collective expertise on emerging threats and international marine biology research.
We support researchers who cannot complete their research for lack of funds within their national research institutions and help them carry out sampling and observations in regions not covered yet by mainstream research organizations

What do viruses do in the oceans?
The world's oceans are teeming with viruses, yet we are at the edge of our understanding on how they impact ocean health and function A litre of seawater typically contains billions of viruses – the vast majority of which remain unidentified.
O.S.F. is helping researchers finally 'see' the hidden viruses in the arctic and find out the future antivirus and systems of prevention.
The next research mission is planned for Summer 2021.

Our oceans are choked with plastic. Eight million tonnes of plastic pollution ends up in the ocean each year, breaking down into tiny bits to become microplastics. Now, microplastics are in the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.
Plastic pollution has become pervasive, pernicious and persistent.
Studies suggest, people are ingesting around 6 grams of plastic a week – the same as one credit card and yet, the scale of microplastics pollution is hard to fathom.
