Marine Conservation

Marine conservation is the concern for and protection of species and ecosystems of the oceans and seas. Oceans and seas, as habitats rich in resources that have significant economic value, are vulnerable to human overexploitation, especially in the name of fishing. Marine conservation calls for the protection of these resource rich areas to protect vital resources from irreversible damage, impacting climate on a global scale.

Marine conservation is grounded in the planned management of resources to protect marine ecosystems. These management techniques limit and restrict human overuse and overharvesting of fish and other marine life. Many countries around the world have implemented laws and treaties to protect against overfishing by limiting quantities of catches. There are also technologies that work to target intended species while fishing and expel unintended marine species from catches. Restriction and educational measurements have also been implemented in tourist industries to move toward sustainable tourism.

Marine conservation is one of the world’s most imperative areas of climate change concern. When these ecosystems are threatened and potentially irreversibly changed, the impact on the Earth’s ecological health is detrimental. It is an ethical responsibility on both an individual and collective scale to protect the oceans and seas.
