Clear Blue Sea is a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in San Diego, California. Our organization is staffed with over 100 volunteers, interns, and mentors. We are committed to innovating robotic solutions for removing plastic pollution from rivers, bays, and oceans.
Clear Blue Sea’s innovation is FRED – the Floating Robot for Eliminating Debris. FRED is a solar powered marine vessel capable of harvesting floating marine debris. Clear Blue Sea has developed four FRED Prototypes and in 2021 began our FRED Pilot Phase.
Clear Blue Sea has a Management Council of managers and interns who collaborate on business decision-making, organizational strategy, and FRED technology roadmaps.
Upon receiving significant grants, we will fund our first full-time, paid management staff positions currently served by volunteers.
This will enable the transition of Clear Blue Sea management and decision-making to a next-generation (Millennials +/-) management team.
