The goal of the conference was to catalyze actions against the threats of unsustainable and illegal fishing, marine pollution and climate-related ocean impacts. The event was hosted by Secretary of State John Kerry and visited by President Obama, who used the occasion to designate the first protected marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean.
