Dear <<First Name>>
Those of you having spent their vacations at the seaside will agree: there are still many beautiful spots to enjoy, but you will also have encountered plastic, toxic cigarette buds and other litter on the beach that threaten marine life. You may also have found in some places in Europe that it is easier to buy farmed Norvegian salmon than local fresh fish. The divers among us need to travel further for dives in relatively intact waters. You might enjoy the tips for divers below, which we circulated through the social media in July.
The summer months in the northern hemisphere also saw a number of workshops and conferences, where Mundus maris participated actively. We are excited about networking, sharing new results and learning to improve action for better protection, for recovery of resources and sustainable use - together with friends and allies. Some more are coming up, including the 3rd World Congress on Small-scale Fisheries in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in October.
