One Ocean, an inter-industry liaison organization for the Newfoundland and Labrador fishing and petroleum industries, provides a neutral and practical forum to enhance sustainable coexistence and facilitate communication, understanding, and cooperation between the two marine industries.
The One Ocean model is unique to the world, providing a valuable forum for two important industries operating in the marine environment to come together, collaboratively and proactively.
One Ocean does not represent the fishing and petroleum industries in Newfoundland and Labrador – it represents the mutual interests of both sectors. One Ocean is a proactive entity that enhances the opportunity for information dissemination and progressive joint initiatives for two industries operating in one ocean.
A series of meetings were held with representatives from the fishing and petroleum sectors to discuss establishing a liaison organization to enhance working relationships between the two industries. Both industries recognized the need for enhanced communication and information exchange as part of developing a cooperative working relationship between the fishing and petroleum sectors.
The inter-industry organization One Ocean was launched.
One Ocean was formally incorporated in Newfoundland and Labrador as One Ocean Corporation. One Ocean is governed by its 2006 corporate By-Law, amended 2022.
One Ocean marks its twentieth year as an inter-industry liaison organization for the fishing and petroleum industries in Newfoundland and Labrador.
