MSC certified fisheries 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 of the ocean, there are lots of innovations out there.​

Can learners think of a way to help make fishing more sustainable? It could be:

– a new piece of tech for scientists of fishers

– a different way of fishing

– an ideas to educate people about our ocean

– a campaign to change what governments do

– or anything else they want!

​Learners can work on their own, in a group or as a whole class to create a drawing, picture display, film, description or diagram of an idea. Schools and educational institutions anywhere around the world can enter. Your school could win £300 (or equivalent in your local currency) to support your ocean literacy work or for your local blue space!
