Fishers from around the world will join in united action on 21 November, to mark World Fisheries Day. The focus each year helps to highlight the critical importance to human lives, of water and the lives it sustains. The theme for this year is “Protect the Marine Ecology and Coastal Environment”.
According to the Resources4rRethinking,
World Fisheries Day was established to draw attention to overfishing, habitat destruction and other serious threats to the sustainability of our marine and freshwater resources. Observance can also help bring awareness of the importance of aquatic environments in sustaining life both in and out of water. Through participation in engaging classroom activities on this special day, young people can be encouraged to help make a difference in the health of our aquatic ecosystems and the variety of species they support.
