Du Littoral aux abysses : beauté et fragilité d'un monde sous-marin

A l’initiative de l’Accord RAMOGE, avec son partenaire le Centre Permanent d’Initiatives pour l’Environnement Iles de Lérins et Pays d’Azur (CPIE), et de la Ville de Cannes, une journée de sensibilisation « Du littoral aux abysses » se tiendra le 8 juin à Cannes, à l’occasion de la journée mondiale des Océans. Cet évènement permettra de sensibiliser le grand public à la beauté et à la fragilité du monde sous-marin. Les associations NaturDive, Méditerrranée 2000, Conseil Scientifique des Iles de Lérins, les campagnes Ecogestes Méditerranée et Inf’eau Mer, s’associent activement à cette initiative.

La journée s’articulera autour de conférences, tables rondes, stands, exposition, projection de film pour vous immerger progressivement dans le monde sous-marin.

Le matin, à partir de 10 heures, l’Espace Miramar accueillera différentes tables rondes qui permettront d’appréhender le monde sous-marin peu profond et proche de nos côtes. Les différents acteurs présenteront leurs actions, de la science participative, aux campagnes de préservation du milieu marin, menées par les associations locales et les collectivités territoriales.

A 14h30, les scientifiques de l’Agence Française pour la Biodiversité (AFB), de l’IFREMER, du CPIE, du Centre Scientifique et de la Direction de l’Environnement de Monaco, de l’Université de Gênes, de l’Instituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA), et du GIS Posidonie, qui ont pris part à la campagne océanographique d’exploration de l’Accord RAMOGE, menée en 2018 dans les zones profondes d’intérêt écologique, présenteront les différents résultats de cette expédition. Ils dévoileront les nombreuses découvertes de cette aventure scientifique, relatives aux habitats et la biodiversité, et les menaces des pressions liées aux activités humaines qui pèsent sur ces milieux. De plus, les géologues qui ont pu bénéficier, grâce à cette exploration, de nouvelles observations sur ces abysses, viendront raconter l’histoire de cette géologie singulière.

A 18 heures sera projeté le film documentaire « Méditerranée » réalisé par Jérôme ESPLA.

 

Venez en famille, petits et grands à la découverte de ce monde peu connu mais fascinant !

Dundee Ocean Wave!
By the V&A on the waterfront
Dundee Ocean Wave!

In preparation for World Oceans Day, we will be creating a human wave of 'blue' people to signify our support for creating ocean sanctuaries. These are sections of ocean which are off limits for industrial fishing and deep-sea mining, and are known to be an effective way of protecting marine species, increasing biodiversity and improving the health of the waters on which we all depend.

So come along and join us for this wonderful photo opportunity, dressed all in blue, and we will provide the face-paint! After the photo, we'll set up a stall and gather petition signatures to UN leaders, urging them to turn 30% of our oceans into sanctuaries. All welcome!

DuPont Sourcing Spearheads Plastic Cleanup in Dawahon Island, Cebu

To celebrate World Oceans Day 2019 last June 8, DuPont Warm Water Seaweed Sourcing sponsored a plastic waste cleanup in Dawahon Island, Leyte in the Philippines. About 30 seaweed farmers working with Royal Algaculture, DuPont’s primary spinosum supplier in the Philippines, cleared almost 1,000 kg of plastic debris from seaweed farms in the island. They also participated in a forum by social worker Elmer Luceno on sustainable plastic management with the municipal solid waste authority. Dawahon island produces about 30MT of dried spinosum for the DuPont Rockland (US) carrageenan processing plant.

The activity marks the eighth consecutive year of World Oceans Day involvement for DuPont Nutrition & BioSciences.

EDF Oceans

What’s for dinner on World Oceans Day, Saturday, June 8th? That’s the question EDF Oceans is asking as we spread the word about healthy, sustainable and sometimes overlooked fish species that would be a tasty and environmentally friendly option for dinner.

The United States has seen the amazing recovery of many of its fish stocks thanks to sustainable practices and management systems. However, oftentimes the fish stocks that are the most sustainable are not the most popular with consumers, encouraging unsustainable sourcing of popular fish and hurting American fishermen who are doing the most for our environment.

EDF’s Oceans program wants to change this by recommending some seafood options that some Americans may not have tried before, but that are both sustainable and delicious.

“Eat your way to a healthier ocean this World Oceans Day by trying out a new sustainable seafood. Being adventurous at the fish counter is one of the best ways you can personally help the environment and support the sustainable seafood industry,” said Tim FitzgeraldDirector of Impact for EDF’s Oceans Program.

Below are just a few environmentally-friendly fish stocks to consider, along with some suggested recipes to try.

 

East Coast- Monkfish

This unconventional looking fish has it all, its tail is sweet, firm and mildly flavored: the perfect choice for picky eaters and seafood enthusiasts alike.

After being declared overfished in 1999, fisheries managers adopted a number of conservation measures that led to monkfish, also called angler fish, being rebuilt in 2013. After years of being red-listed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program, the fishery was upgraded to “Good Alternative” in 2012.

Monkfish can be found either fresh or frozen in a variety of preparations including whole, tail fillets either with the skin on or off.

 

Gulf of Mexico- Red Snapper

Red Snapper is not just a popular and delicious fish across the U.S., it’s also one of America’s greatest comeback stories.

Less than 15 years ago, the Gulf of Mexico red snapper fishery was on the verge of collapse due to decades of poor management. In 2007, commercial fishermen shifted to a secure fishing rights system that meant more predictability for fishermen and businesses, as well as a sustainable way forward for this iconic species.

The fishery has rebounded in dramatic fashion. By 2013 snapper was taken off the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “avoid” list and is currently listed as a “good alternative”.
 

This stock’s recovery has meant good news for fishermen, the seafood industry, chefs and consumers who love to eat this highly versatile and easy-to-prepare fish. Try it grilled, with a light dressing of lemon and thyme.

Make sure you are getting authentic Gulf Red Snapper using programs like Gulf Wild.

West Coast- Chilipepper Rockfish and Yellowtail Rockfish

Don’t let the name confuse you, Chilipepper Rockfish won’t set your mouth on fire. But it is one of the more than 90 groundfish species that include cod, sole and more that are plentiful, sustainably harvested and delicious.

West coast Groundfish used to be wildly popular in the ’80s and ’90s. Unfortunately, unsustainable catch limits led many fish species to be overexploited, causing major problems for fish and fishermen.

In 2000, the U.S. Pacific groundfish fishery was on the verge of collapse, and the federal government declared it a disaster.

Fishermen, regulators and conservationists, including Environmental Defense Fund, worked together to design a rights-based management plan that went into operation in 2011.

Now, less than 20 years after it was declared a disaster, the fishery has rebounded spectacularly, with several overfished stocks completely rebuilt, many ahead of schedule.

Fishermen are now able to harvest millions of pounds of abundant and sustainable rockfish and other species, with last year having the largest volume of groundfish caught since the fishery was declared a disaster in 2000.

However, after years of these tasty fish being less available in the market, fishermen are not seeing the same demand for these delicious fish as there used to be. You can help by seeking out recovered groundfish species like Chilipepper Rockfish and Yellowtail Rockfish for dinner this World Oceans Day.

Positively Groundfish is a great resource for more information about the amazing recovery of the West Coast Groundfish Fishery.
