The ocean is the cradle of life and covers three quarters of our blue planet. It is vital for the health of our ecosystems, essential for the balance of the climate and for the global economy. To ensure the transition towards a model of sustainable development, our societies must better understand the treasures of marine biodiversity, and manage them more effectively.
