Tasmanian Ocean Summit 2022
Published on 21 November 2022
Tasmania is an island state; the ocean and coasts are embedded in our psyche. This connection to the sea is ancient – First Nations Tasmanians have cared for Sea Country for over 40,000 years.
Tasmania has some of the highest levels of marine diversity and species found no where else in the world. This is globally significant. Our economic, community and cultural wellbeing depends on these ecosystems remaining healthy. But our marine life is under pressure with depleted fish stocks, threatened species, and poor habitat protection. Pollution and climate change are only exacerbating pressures.
This gathering will host a compelling program of speakers, panel discussions and networking opportunities to lay the foundation for the change required to achieve a sustainable ocean economy with more effective protection, more sustainable production and more equitable prosperity.
The first review of Tasmania's main marine law, the Living Marine Resource Management Act 1995, is currently underway and provides the best opportunity in a generation to fundamentally improve the way we care for and use our coastal waters.
Speakers will be present in the morning and early afternoon, followed by two panel sessions, on Economics and Management frameworks for the ocean we want.
