Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

The Oceanology International event offers the world’s leading forum where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the marine science and ocean technology communities. Oceanology International’s world-class exhibition and conference help organisations reach buyers from key market regions and sectors worldwide and helps them improve their strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans. This is directly related to SDG 14: Life below water and advances the SDG Target 14.a to increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity and transfer marine technology.
For many years, WTM London has organised World Responsible Tourism Day, with the support of the United Nations World Tourism Organization. This is the world’s largest industry event focused on efforts to make the industry more responsible and sustainable. Each year leading figures from the industry, along with representatives of civil society and key organisations, gather to discuss the key issues facing the sustainable development of tourism. Many of these issues are directly reflected in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which was the focus of a key panel discussion at the 2016 event.

Focussing on SDG's 3 (good health and well-being), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review piece identifies limitations in current methodologies and practices used to study microplastics in seafood. Future studies may be improved by harmonising research methods, including sampling, isolation, quantification, polymer identification, and contamination management procedures.

This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.

This article contributes to SDG 13 (climate action) and SDG 14 (life below water), highlighting the importance of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as effective instruments to conserve biodiversity and its resources.
This study compares different microplastic sampling methods for water, sediment and biota. This supports SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research) 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
