Within the framework of the World Oceans Day celebration, the "Admiral Padilla" Naval Academy joins and makes this date a great event, to sensitize, raise awareness and educate population in general about the importance of our maritime territory. In this order of ideas we will carry out different activities such as lectures of thought, talks, children's workshops, underwater cleanings and cultural samples. The national flag of Colombia symbolizes Colombian independence from Spain, gained on July 20, 1810. It is a horizontal tricolor of yellow, blue and red. The blue stripe represents the seas on Colombia's shores and the rivers that run through. This year, the theme for our World Oceans Day celebration is "Let's protect the blue of our flag", our purpose is to generate maritime culture in Colombian people and contribute to the recognition of our oceans as a resource of sustainable use for the socio-economic development of the Nation.

All of our fish comes from this river!
This World Oceans Day, we’re celebrating the theme #fishunknown, the lesser-known, underutilised and underappreciated fish species.
Because we are inland and aspire to only support local suppliers and producers and to ensure freshness and a true sense of place, we don’t have seafood on the menu. Instead, we give guests a chance to taste the fish of the Zambezi, caught sustainably by local fishermen, just like this gentleman.
We’re helping to protect the ocean’s resources by staying away from them. Zambezi bream is a delicious, bountiful and local favourite.
Chef George and the team invite you to taste it with us ~ this World Oceans Day on 8 June, withRelais & Châteaux and for the entire first week, and beyond.
World Ocean’s Day is an international celebration of the ocean and the important role it plays in our lives. The day helps raise awareness of the ocean, and inspires greater involvement in helping to conserve this amazing resource we all depend on. To celebrate this year, more than 200 Relais & Châteaux Chefs will participate in the 'Fish Unknown' initiative to honor marine biodiversity, lesser known species and sustainable ocean products – all of which will be highlighted on dining menus and events across the globe.
Join us at Chez Muffy restaurant as we help preserve our resources with a specially created ethical dinner menu on Friday (June 7) Saturday (June 8) and Sunday (June 9). It’s up to each one of us to help ensure that our ocean is healthy for future generations.
Enjoy our three-course menu made with local, Quebec ethical produce, a creation by our own Chef Julien Ouellet.

They deal with a dedication to the oceans, sea life and the marine ecosystem that plays a vital role for human life, as well as the aim to raise more awareness about the effects of plastic waste on the oceans and aquatic life and how it ultimately impacts our lives.
WORLD OCEAN DAY SPECIAL EVENT SEE - Bluefin: The Last of the Giants FOR FREE
A Feature documentary
by John Hopkins
Something strange is going off Prince Edward Island, Canada. Why are normally fearful giant bluefin not scared of humans anymore? Why are they swarming fishing boats, desperately seeking to be hand-fed? Are these "endangered" tuna stocks rebuilt as the fishermen claim? Or are we actually hunting down the last of them like the buffalo as scientists claim? Bluefin will change everything you thought you knew about tuna and sushi inside out. It is time that we learned to love these giant and relentlessly hunted bluefin as extraordinary "wildlife," like we do for whales, dolphins and panda bears. Through the example of the extraordinary giant bluefin found in the waters off North Lake, PEI known as “The Tuna Capital of the World."Bluefin, a new acclaimed documentary by award winning filmmaker John Hopkins, offers us something new to learn about how the way we are socialized directly conflicts with the sustainability of oceans and its wildlife.
“This documentary will make you wonder out loud about the human condition.”
Santa Barbara Independent "The dramatic footage of bluefin tuna swimming freely in the sea will take your breath away and make you never want to order another slice of tuna sashimi again…” awardsdaily.com
“This is an important story about [the] greed and short-sightedness that are driving one of the ocean’s most magnificent animals to extinction. But bluefin tuna have surprised us in Canada, offering us a chance to save this charismatic creature if we care enough.” David Suzuki

La Comisión Colombiana del Océano en alianza con la Universidad Cooperativa de Pasto realizarán el próximo 06 de junio la segunda versión del Foro de los Océanos, una actividad que se enmarca en la celebración del Día Mundial de los Océanos.
El propósito del Foro que se desarrollará en las instalaciones de la Universidad Cooperativa de Pasto, es generar un escenario que permita reconocer, compartir y divulgar las mejores prácticas marítimas y costeras partiendo de la trayectoria profesional y académica de un grupo de panelistas reconocidos del sector.
En esta ocasión se han establecido dos temáticas, la primera está relacionada con el papel de la mujer en las ciencias del mar y el segundo está enfocado en cambio climático. A través de estos temas el foro se convierte en una oportunidad para fortalecer el conocimiento de nuestro territorio marítimo, pero a su vez les permitirá a los asistentes entender que a través de la riqueza de nuestros mares, Colombia puede avanzar en su desarrollo económico, educativo, político, científico, tecnológico y social.
De igual manera, esta iniciativa pretende promover el trabajo articulado en la construcción de país marítimo; reto que comprende difusión, articulación, coordinación y armonización de acciones a nivel nacional que permitan el reconocimiento de nuestro territorio marítimo, resaltando las oportunidades únicas que posee la geografía colombiana al ser un país con salida al Mar Caribe y el Océano Pacífico.
