Ocean Frontier 2018 – An ocean of opportunity
Since time began, the ocean has impacted our life and how we live it. It has shaped our culture, our heritage and it will impact our collective future.
Learning about the ocean helps us understand our connections to the sea. It also identifies what’s required to responsibly develop our ocean resources while we take steps to protect marine ecosystems, reduce pollution and combat climate change.
Ocean Frontier 2018 will highlight the research that will:
- improve prediction and mitigation of major storms
- transform how we monitor the ocean with new data capture and IT tools
- help manage human activities as they relate to ocean resources
- improve the potential for fisheries and aquaculture industries to meet global seafood demand in a sustainable manner
- strengthen marine safety
