World Oceans Day 2023: It’s High Time We Take Sustainable Fisheries Sea-riously

The ocean covers more than 70% of this blue planet, and plays an essential part in supporting all life on this planet. We rely on the ocean to produce more than half of the planet’s oxygen as well as to provide sustenance and jobs for us humans. But with our marine and aquatic ecosystems under stress and threat, what does this mean for the future of our planet and humanity?

In conjunction with World Oceans Day which is celebrated annually on the 8th of June, we dive into how we can better protect our oceans through the lens of sustainable aquaculture and fisheries, together with Dr Essam Yassin Mohammed, Director-General of WorldFish, an international non-profit research and innovation organisation working across Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
