Ocean Health Index

“The Index is a comprehensive new measure that scores ocean health from 0 – 100. It defines a health ocean as one that sustainably delivers a range of benefits to people both now and in the future.”  The OHI is an ongoing assessment of the oceans, and uses 10 Goals (ex. Food provision, Carbon storage, Biodiversity, etc.) to assess the health of the ocean for all coastal countries to get a global picture. The current global score is 60/100, with the top score belonging to Jarvis Island (86/100), and the lowest score going to Sierra Leone (36/100). Canada is currently ranked in 9th place with a score of 70.

The OHI contains a vast amount of information and many different ways of filtering/viewing their results.
