Olazul seeks to help coastal communities transition from overfishing and destructive seafood farming practices to more ecologically and financially sound livelihoods through ecological aquaculture. By implementing a new model for aquaculture using open ocean technology which will be integrated into regional policy frameworks, Olazul will set a new course for fisheries management in line with conservation priorities.Instead of a cure-all for collapsing fisheries, Olazul sees aquaculture as a tool for transitioning away from unsustainable seafood industries. With the right regulatory framework and methodology, aquaculture can help minimize pressure on marine ecosystems.
Olazul's full startup assistance program supports locally-operated open-ocean shrimp and fish aquaculture ventures. These programs serve to strengthen the economic security of participating communities by developing consistent revenue streams built on sustainable business models. Collaboration with program participants ensures adherence to best practices, driving non-financial returns across the community and increasing overall social equity. Through its partnerships with conservation groups, Olazul also supports improved management of regional fisheries and promotes local stewardship of marine and coastal ecosystems.
