Schools Competition with Marine Stewardship Council

At Marine Stewardship Council we LOVE a lightbulb moment !

MSC fishers and scientists are always looking out for new ways to help make fishing more sustainable. Whether it’s reducing bycatch, protecting the ocean ecosystem, or understanding more about what’s going on under the surface, there are lots of scientific solutions out there.

Can learners think of a way to help make fishing more sustainable? It might involve a new piece of tech, a new material for fishing gear, a new way to monitor healthy fish stocks or something else.

Learners can work on their own, in a group or as a whole class to create a drawing, picture display or diagram of your idea, and your school could win £300 or equivalent in your local currency to support your ocean literacy work or for your local blue space!

Three winning educational institutions will be selected – with a 1st prize of £300, 2nd prize of £200, and 3rd prize of £100 for their ocean sustainability work or to protect their blue space. The funds could be used for anything from a visit to a local aquarium to a beach clean, or equipment like litter pickers or reusable water bottles for the class.
