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. We need to conserve our wonderful marine resources for future generations.

The blue MSC ecolabel helps everyone play their part and make sustainable choices. By choosing the ecolabel, you can enjoy healthy seafood knowing you’re making the best choice for our ocean – for the life within it and for those whose livelihoods depend on it.

This year we want to showcase just how big of an impact sustainable fishing can have on our lives, providing more fish, more colour and more choice. 

How scientists help fisheries protect our ocean

Sustainable fishing requires the support, dedicated work and expertise of experienced marine researchers and scientists. Fisheries scientists draw on lots of different disciplines, like marine biology, conservation, statistics, ecology and more, to understand and manage fisheries, putting rules in place to help fish stocks and biodiversity thrive and fishers to maintain their livelihoods.
