14 Life Below Water

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

Traceability of fish and environmental management of marine resources are the focus of ISO/TC 234, ISO’s technical committee for fisheries and aquaculture, which provides a unique opportunity to participate in the development of fisheries and aquaculture in a way that respects sustainable development.

In addition, ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology, has developed over 250 sustainability-related standards for the design, construction, equipment, technology and marine environmental matters related to shipbuilding. In particular, ISO/TC 8’s subcommittee SC 2, Marine environment protection, has standards related to the environmental impact of ships and marine technology, such as the response to oil spills and the management of port waste reception facilities.
