Report/Oceans: Stocking Up: Securing Our Marine Economy | Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security | Scoop.it

Introducing CPD’s first Sustainable Economy Report
Our oceans are often out of sight, but that doesn’t mean they should be out of mind. Australia is surrounded by a vast wealth of oceans. We have the world’s third largest marine estate. We have the highest marine biodiversity in the world. Our marine economy supports thousands of regional jobs through commercial fishing, marine tourism and recreational fishing. Yet official accounts record only a fraction of the real, long-term value of our oceans.
