Supporting Goal 14: Life Below Water, Oceanology International North America's world-class exhibition and conference helps organisations reach buyers from key market regions and sectors worldwide and help them improve their strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.
Contributing to goal 14 (life below water), this paper addresses the long-term process from conceptualisation to operationalisation of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries in Uruguayan Small-Scale Fisheries. It was nominated for the May 2018 Elsevier Atlas Award.

Advancing SDG 9.5 (enhance scientific research), this review explores experimental techniques for the assessment of micro- and nanoplastics in the environment. Enhanced research into these environmental pollutants may further support SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
This article expresses the need for standardized analytical methods and techniques in microplastic research, supporting SDGs 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life under water) and 15 (life on land).
Contributing to SDGs 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 14 (life under water) and 15 (life on land), this article identifies research priorities for current and future studies on microplastics and their interaction with organisms.
This critical review explores current knowledge surrounding interactions between microplastics and persistent organic pollutants present within the marine environment. Enhanced understanding of microplastic's environmental impact supports SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).

This critical review evaluates environmental microplastic research methodologies. Developing standardized sampling techniques may advance the efficiency, accuracy and ease of future microplastic research. Improved understanding of microplastic impacts will advance progress towards multiple SDG's.
Advancing goals 7 and 14, this article examines the potential ecological effects of submarine power cables during installation, operation and decommissioning phases and sets recommendations for better monitoring and mitigation of the most significant impacts
