The oceans are some of the last untamed frontiers on our planet. Too big to police, and under no clear international authority, these treacherous waters play host to the extremes of human behavior and activity. The Outlaw Ocean Project uncovers a globe-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil and shipping industries – but to which all of us are connected. The nonprofit produces innovative journalism from this lawless realm seen and heard all over the world — from documentaries to original music.
