The Aspen Institute’s Ocean Community Strategy Roundtable was convened at Aspen Wye River in December 2013 to assess the steps required for scaling investment in and deployment of ocean conservation tools in both small-scale coastal fisheries and large-scale MPAs. This roundtable served as a platform for the ocean community to align socioeconomic and conservation goals, including the promotion of Public- Private Partnerships through a new set of stakeholders, from policymakers to fishermen.

The Roundtable report focuses on several key areas as potential keys to the success of new conservation models being used to scale marine protection efforts, particularly the development of government-led change through PPPs, the role of corporations with shared agendas in promoting conseravtion, and new subcontractor models of conservation implementation.
