June 8 is World Ocean Day and a good time to rethink how to put into practice what governments have promised on behalf of all of us when they adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, including stopping overfishing and implementing the Guidelines for Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries. Innovation for a sustainable ocean is the UN motto for this year, and the Corona pandemic certainly stimulates a lot of it.

Meanwhile, a number of schools have already registered for participation in the collective effort to produce the Book of the Marine World. While the deadline for the full book has been postponed to 21 November, World Fisheries Day, some enthusiasts have started to post their works on the specially created instagram account. Check it out and contribute yours - no age limit applies.
