The ocean is in trouble from overfishing, pollution, climate change and more. We need to work together to create a new harmony with the ocean that restores its health and brings it new life. Don’t miss this opportunity to make a wave of change for our blue planet!
In conjunction with World Oceans Day, Akademi Sains Malaysia and the Mahathir Science Award Foundation (MSAF) brought you the webinar titled 'Empowering marine life conservation in the Tropics’ on World Ocean Day, a global movement to celebrate and safeguard the ocean.
WorldFish's Acting Director for the Sustainable Aquatic Food Systems Research Program, Eddie Allison, joined the panel to discuss aquatic foods from the ocean, the blue economy, and ocean distributional justice, drawing from his expertise from the Blue Food Assessment.
