High Seas Weather
The TerraMar Project

71% of the planet is ocean and 64% the high seas – lies outside of any single country’s jurisdiction.

The high seas are the most ignored, least explored, and largest unregulated part of the planet.

Our mission is to create a global ocean community to give a voice to the high seas.

Join us. Sign the I Love the Ocean Pledge . Let the world know that you love the ocean

and want it to be sustainably managed.
