World Ocean Day is a reminder of the critical role that oceans play in the global environment and in our everyday lives. Oceans are connected to all life on Earth. They produce more than 50% of the planet's oxygen and absorb 30% of carbon emissions. Oceans are critical for people's health and livelihoods. They provide the main source of protein for over one billion people. By 2030, 40 million people will be employed in ocean-based industries.
On World Oceans Day, The Venetian Resort Las Vegas announced a sustainable seafood partnership with FishWise, an innovative and solutions-driven industry leader providing data-driven market tools and expertise in sustainability, human rights action, and traceability best practices.
