Ocean Literacy and Marine Science Communication

Alongside conducting marine science research, it is equally important to communicate about the results, the discoveries, the new knowledge, the remaining unknowns, and what all of this means for policy and society. This call for ocean literacy, the understanding of the critical role of the ocean in our lives and our impacts on the ocean, in all parts of society.
