On 8th June we celebrate the World Oceans Day: an important reminder for all of us to protect our seas and to raise awareness on the tremendous challenges we are still facing. Oceans are full of potential but before we exploit them, we need rules to keep the balance between environment and economic sustainability.

This is why in the EU we reformed our Fisheries policy and shaped our Integrated Maritime policy in a sustainable way. At the same time, we opt for growth through the use of untapped resources. We have showed that change is possible and our recent European achievements proved right.

But this is not enough if we are alone. We need to “go global”.........Maria Damanaki's blog - European Commission
