Celebrations of World Oceans Day: 8 June

As part of the celebrations of World Oceans Day, which is celebrated on 8 June, two conferences will be held, in the Fisheries Museum, on the future of our oceans: on coral reefs (8 June), and on marine innovation in Mozambique (9 June). The highly regarded BIOFUND exhibition on the marine wealth and biodiversity of Mozambique will form part of the celebrations of this day, since it will be displayed during the conferences. These conferences are organised by the French Embassy and UNESCO in partnership with the Ministry of the Sea, Inland Waters and Fisheries and the Fisheries Museum. They promise to bring together scientists, academics, students, influential figures and civil society in a debate to raise awareness of the importance of this great reservoir of biodiversity.
