SOCAP: Oceans is a theme this year to fuel innovation and attract a broader set of stakeholders to participate in the sustainability of our oceans. By reaching out to a new cast of characters to take a fresh look at the sources and systems that affect and are affected by the health of the ocean, the challenges will be reconceived in a way that supports existing ocean advocates as well as invites innovative new solutions.

Healthy Oceans, Healthy Communities
Oceans, HealthWednesday - 12:15PM to 1:15PM
The well-being of our communities is directly related to the health of our oceans. For coastal communities, a thriving ocean can provide essential services through food commerce and recreation. This panel will investigate people and programs that connect people to the ocean, whether through the humble vehicle of a nutritious seafood dinner or a nationwide prescription to eat more anchovies. Saving the oceans goes hand-in-hand with preserving our own well-being.
