Our vision is an ocean that will sustain future generations.
AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles is dedicated to accelerating scientific collaboration, advancing an emerging blue economy through business innovation and job creation, and inspiring the next generation, all for a more sustainable, just and equitable world.
We will turn to the ocean to develop solutions for some of the planet’s most pressing challenges, such as climate change, energy supply and global food security – and prepare today’s generation of students for future jobs in science, technology, engineering, business and the ocean.
Inclusion and Diversity
AltaSea is dedicated to finding rapid solutions for the planet’s most pressing challenges. Our goal is a sustainable, just and equitable world. To achieve our mission, we embrace an accelerated approach to diversity and inclusion, and as a fundamental part of our vision and success, AltaSea is committed to a workplace that will represent and empower our community.
Why AltaSea? Why Now?
The ocean covers over 70% of our planet, but only 5% of it has been explored. Some of the 21st Century’s biggest advances will come from deep sea exploration. Growth in the world’s population, increasing pollution, over fishing and global warming have led to an array of problems threatening the ocean and, consequently, society’s welfare. AltaSea is uniquely positioned to place Los Angeles at the global center of solutions for these pressing issues.
