www.oceanhealthindex.org

From the site, “The Ocean Health Index is the first comprehensive global measurement of ocean health that includes people as part of the ocean ecosystem.It scientifically compares and combines all dimensions of ocean health – biological, physical, economic and social, in order to generate an objective and accurate snapshot of the health of the ocean controlled by every coastal country.

The Index assesses the ocean based on 10 widely-held public goals for a healthy ocean. They are:

  • Food Provision
  • Artisanal Fishing Opportunities
  • Natural Products
  • Carbon Storage
  • Coastal Protection
  • Sense of Place
  • Coastal Livelihoods & Economies
  • Tourism & Recreation
  • Clean Waters
  • Biodiversity”

Over 170 countries and territories are measured for the health of the adjacent water. The highest score that can be reached is a 100. The goals above can be searched on a global, as well as country scale.
