Blue economy: experiencing the sea without fishing

The blue economy impels hundreds of pro-sustainability initiatives and transforms the way marine resources are used.

The blue economy is making unstoppable inroads. It puts the planet and its inhabitants first and promotes activities that acknowledge the value of the seas and the oceans as economic drivers thanks to their enormous innovation and growth potential. 

Under this philosophy, a myriad of business ideas are sprouting throughout the world. From companies that give people an opportunity to experience fishing tradition and culture alongside sea professionals to those that use ocean litter to make and sell upcycled plastic products.
