OCEAN VILLAGE

ABOUT

The Ocean Village is composed of stakeholders in Bermuda that have a specific interest and perspective regarding Bermuda’s ocean environment. The role of the Ocean Village is to act as representatives of ocean interests to help BOPP better understand and address the needs and perspectives of Bermuda's communities. These perspectives will help develop the Blue Economy and Marine Spatial plans, which will provide guidance for the development of sustainable marine industries, creation of marine protected areas, and protection of fisheries well into the future.  The Ocean Village is not meant to replace engagement with the general public - all perspectives are important and welcome.
