  • Ikkatsu is a Japanese word that means "together" or "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. The Ikkatsu Project is dedicated to exploration, education and advocacy in the service of the ocean. Our blog, with the most recent entries displayed on this page, is an ongoing report on issues related to marine pollution, as well as an update on Ikkatsu Project activities. Our other pages (listed above), provide information on the various aspects of our mission and provide ways that you can be a part of the project as we continue on into the future. Your feedback is welcome.

The phosphorescence has been amazing for the past week or so, millions upon millions of tiny greenish lights in the water, almost like curtains of lights shimmering in the kelp and along the … Continue reading
