The Ikkatsu Project

Ikkatsu is a Japanese term that means “united as one,” a concept that is illustrated perfectly by our oceans and the fact that, rather than separate us, they serve to bring us all together. From our home waters in the Pacific Northwest, the Ikkatsu Project is working to raise awareness about the many issues facing today’s global marine environment.
