Our mission

We are students of the sea, seeking to understand how the ocean can be used to build a zero-carbon future. We study how the ocean’s natural rhythms can decarbonize the planet, restore habitats, and help people live healthier lives.

We are Fishermen, engineers, software developers, maritime professionals, oceanographers, data scientists, hatchery technicians, and more.

Born on the coast of Maine, the Running Tide team has experienced first hand the steady degradation of coastal ecosystems and working waterfronts. Stories of abundant ecosystems and the thriving communities that depend on them have evaporated in a single generation. We see rising water temperatures, an accelerating loss of oyster, seagrass and kelp habitat, loss of fish stocks and declining water quality. These problems won't solve themselves.

At Running Tide, we are putting forth our greatest efforts to restore the most precious and important ecosystems in the world. We are fueled by the desire to pass a world of abundance and climate stability to our children.

At our core, we are innovators driven to do “more good” rather than “less bad” in the world.
