Race for the Oceans

U.S. Olympic swimmer and three time gold medalist Aaron Peirsol has a deep love for the water. He has joined Oceana in the fight to preserve and protect the world’s oceans. Scientists have said that wild seafood populations will collapse by the middle of this century if we keep fishing at the rate we do now. Pollution and global climate change also threaten pristine ocean ecosystems.
