World Ocean Day

Join the MSC in Celebrating World Ocean Day!

June is a time to celebrate our ocean and the major role it plays in everyday life - it's National Ocean Month, and June 8 is World Ocean Day. Our ocean feeds billions of people, covers over 70% of the planet, and provides 80% of the world’s biodiversity.

For more than 20 years, the MSC has been working with fisheries and businesses to safeguard our ocean for future generations. 

Choosing the MSC blue fish label when purchasing seafood is just one of many small actions you can take this World Oceans Day—and every day—to support sustainable fisheries and protect our ocean.

When we look after the ocean, the ocean looks after us. Take a deep dive and discover how MSC certified fisheries help protect the ocean.
