Hi…it’s Alvania again. First and foremost, what is the blue economy? The definition of the blue economy varies depending on different countries. My personal favorite is of course the Seychelles’. The Seychelles’ concept is to act as a mechanism to realize sustainable economic development based around an ocean-based economy. This, aims to gain profit from the ocean but distinctly from that of other countries with an ocean-based economy, Seychelles also preserves and protects the ocean
Island Conservation Society (ICS) contributes to the blue economy by stimulating sustainable fishing, raising awareness about the benefits of Marine Protected Areas (MPA) and the importance of the conservation of the biodiversity, advocating sustainable/eco-tourism and keeping record of the status of the MPA.
ICS execute these contributions thoroughly.
To everyone reading, ICS workers have this to say:
“The blue economy is a great concept that will be beneficial to everyone in Seychelles. For it to be a success, everyone needs to work in collaboration to find a good compromise” – Francois Baguette
“Use the ocean but please know how to also preserve it” – Teesha Baboorun
