Report 3: “Ocean Newsletter”, Ocean Policy Research Institute, October 2015.

If you are trying to understand the impact of the seafood industry in an environmental level, we can recommend you the monthly “Ocean Newsletter”, were you can find information about the proper management of the oceans, level of damage and new legislations.

“A better understanding is needed that we are now in an age when the impact of mankind on the ocean has reached unprecedented levels, provoking changes in the marine environment with immediate consequences for human survival. As it is important that a wide range of knowledge, skills, and judgment concerning the ocean is acquired by children as part of their schooling, I believe “ocean education” deserves to be recognized as an official part of the Curriculum Guidelines.”
