Every June, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) participates in World Ocean Day — a global event created by the United Nations that highlights the importance of our ocean and raises awareness of the actions we can all take to protect it.

Celebrating Sustainable Fishing on World Ocean Day

At the MSC we know that sustainable fishing is critical to ensuring that the ocean has healthy fish populations, that marine ecosystems are protected, and that people around the world have access to healthy seafood for generations to come.

This year, we’re celebrating the role that MSC certified sustainable fisheries play in protecting the ocean, and showing how sustainable fishing means so much more than you might think. 

Sustainable Fishing Means More…

How can you help the ocean this World Ocean Day and beyond?

There are many actions you can take, both big and small, to contribute to a healthier ocean. Here are three easy ways to begin:

  1. Learn more about how your everyday purchases have the power to help protect our ocean through sustainable choices.
  2. Take our quiz to learn more about the ocean and share your learnings with family, friends and community in person, over a meal, or on social media - this is a worldwide movement and sharing can help people feel empowered that their everyday actions can make a difference.
  3. Look for and support companies, products, and organizations that help care for our ocean’s health and wildlife.
