Monthly Ocean Science Roundup – March 2020

Date: 1st April 2020

This issue explores:

  • Early Last Interglacial ocean warming drove substantial ice mass loss from Antarctica
  • Illicit trade in marine fish catch and its effects on ecosystems and people worldwide
  • Adjacency and due regard: The role of coastal States in the BBNJ treaty

Welcome to the March 2020 issue of the OneOcean Mailout. We hope everyone is staying safe during these difficult times. Due to COVID-19, several key ocean events have been postponed, including the fourth and final scheduled UN negotiating session towards the creation of a new treaty to protect the biodiversity of the High Seas this month (March 23-April 3).

We must aim to keep the ocean on the agenda and make some noise around the importance of the ocean and protecting nature. 

With this in mind, we’re bringing you three recent publications around ocean warming in Antarctica, illicit trade in marine fish catch, and the role of coastal States in the BBNJ treaty. 

You can find out more at and by following #OneOceanOnePlanet.
