Ocean Culture - People and the Sea
11-18 March, 2001

The focus for Seaweek 2001 is on the relationship of people and the sea.


A culture is a way of life including the customs, beliefs, values, technology and social institutions shared by a social group or society. Cultures are learnt and are therefore dependent on transmission or communication; they differ from group to group and change over time.

Many cultures have been influenced through association with the sea, hence the term Ocean Culture.
