Theme: Celebrate the Sea: Explore the deep

Seaweek '97 coordinator: Lin Fairlie

Personal actions

Everything we do has an effect somewhere else, from the highest mountains to the deepest seas

  • When shopping choose products that have not come as a result of destruction to deep sea marine habitats eg ask/read how the seafood was caught and find out what effect the fishery is having on the ocean ecosystems

  • Research and discover more about our amazing oceans, from the beach to the deep sea, use videos, CD Roms, internet sites, books and magazine.
