Focuses on a broad range of issues affecting the ocean, specifically concentrating on plastic pollution, marine protection, water quality and climate change. The group brings together politicians and key stakeholders into a participatory space where expertise, ideas and networking converge to help better protect the ocean.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
