Tell us how your organization is educating your audience/s about marine aquacultureThe Galway Statement Implementation Committee’s Ocean Literacy Working Group and Aquaculture Working Group are seeking your input to help shape recommendations which will lead to the development of tools and resources targeted to cohesive, science-based public education about marine aquaculture at national and international levels. This brief survey has been developed for educators and institutions that specialize in ocean literacy and seafood businesses that provide information to their customers. It will provide a landscape overview of who is sharing information about marine aquaculture, the context in which they are doing so, and the channels through which they are disseminating it.
Project collaborators include: The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance project, Aquarium of the Pacific’s Seafood for the Future program (SFF), European Commisssion Horizon 2020 projects (AORA-CSA, ResponSEAble, SUCCESS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). SFF will collect and archive the data.
We would greatly appreciate participation from your institution to help formulate our recommendations to address public perceptions about marine aquaculture. It should take no more than 10-15 minutes and we only need one entry per institution. Please fill it out by July 15, 2019.

About The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance:
The Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation was signed in May 2013 by the European Union, Canada and the United States. This statement establishes a formal Atlantic Ocean Research Cooperation between the CA, EU and the US and partner countries that builds on existing initiatives and programmes to:
• improve ocean health and stewardship
• promote sustainable management of resources
• improve ecosystem assessments and forecasts and deeper understanding of vulnerabilities and risks, including climate change
• generate new tools to increase resilience, conserve rich biodiversity, manage risk and determine social, environmental, and economic priorities
• promote our citizens’ understanding of the value of the Atlantic by promoting oceans literacy
• Galway Statement Implementation Committee’s Ocean Literacy and Aquaculture Working Groups
Ocean Literacy and Aquaculture (North Atlantic and Arctic) are two of the priority themes identified in the transatlantic cooperation established by the Galway Statement and operationalized through the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AORA) among Canada, the European Union and the United States of America. The Galway Statement Implementation Committee’s Ocean Literacy Working Group and Aquaculture Working Group are working together to address public perception of aquaculture by seeking input to determine the current state of efforts to educate the public about marine aquaculture.
