Marine wildlife tourism (MWT) requires new approaches in its management frameworks. Several physiological and ecological impacts are shared across different MWT types. Successful cases can provide strategies to be applied to other MWT ventures. Scientific knowledge and adaptive management are essential to improve MWT. If well managed, MWT can be essential for species/habitat conservation and the achievement of SDG 14.
This article serves to support SDG 14 (life below water) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production). Current international strategies and policies to reduce single-use plastics (plastic bags and microbeads) are reviewed.
This is a timely article with potential to tackle multiple fronts of sustainable development with regards to agricultural intensification and green revolution which are currently taking precedence in most developing countries as a means of boosting productivity and ensuring food security. Given the high dependence of the modern global food production system on the continuous supply of commercial phosphorus (P) fertilizers, this study presents a detailed, methodical, and up to date assessment of the key sustainability challenges for the global P resource, and highlights their implications for global food security. This article addresses SDG 2; SDG 12; SDG 14 and SDG 15.
The Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs aims to inspire all business — regardless of size, sector or geography — to take leading action in support of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It illustrates how the five leadership qualities of Ambition, Collaboration, Accountability, Consistency, and Intentional can be applied to a business' strategy, business model, products, supply chain, partnerships, and operations to raise the bar and create impact at scale. The Blueprint is a tool for any business that is ready to advance its principled approach to SDG action to become a leader. This chapter relates specifically to SDG 14.
To advance goal 14 (life below water), age and growth studies have been carried out on fish so that scientists and fisheries can better understand exploitation rates and assess stock levels.
This article contributes to SDG 14 life below water’s focus on the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development in the context of deep-seabed mining.

This article contributes to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and SDG 14 (life below land). This paper analyses policies and future strategies necessary for improving the sustainability of China’s seafood consumption.
Global consumption of aquatic foods has been increasing in recent decades but demand outstrips supply. This study evaluated the sustainability of cage production systems for Nile tilapia in the Santa Cruz Reservoir. The results showed that by creating a framework to measure the sustainability of aquaculture production, effects of increasing production can be assessed and measures can be taken to meet SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts.
Ocean Observations
The 'Marine Technology and Services Sector Role' track from the Oceanology International 2016 conference provides the latest trends in ocean observing, viewed through the lens of the 'Blue Economy'. Presentations from a range of experts provide new perspectives and identify key trends that will influence future developments. Stewardship of the seas is vital SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts.

Marine Renewables
The Marine Renewables Conference at Oceanology International 2016 heard from industry experts about recent innovations in modelling, surveying and foundation design, and new techniques and technologies in offshore surveying. The conference included presentations on the novel foundation systems which are being deployed to support offshore wind, tidal and wave energy projects globally. Information about latest technologies and techniques support SDG 7 and SDG 14, to harness renewable energy whilst protecting oceans and seas.
