Video message by European Commissioner Karmenu Vella on the launch of the global campaign "World Aquariums Against Marine Litter"
The European Commission is calling all aquariums to join a global awareness raising action about marine litter.
Marine pollution is one of the key topics of the Our Ocean Conference.
Every year millions of tons of litter end up in the ocean. It is estimated that by 2050 our seas could contain more plastic than fish.
Aquariums are ideal partners to showcase this growing problem and to engage thousands of people, by presenting practical solutions.
