World Oceans Day 2016
World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. Kepley BioSystems is proud that our sustainable product, OrganoBait, has the potential to alter our heavy overfishing of forage fish to be used as crustacean bait. Forage fish are a critical element in the oceanic ecosystem as they are a food source for most other marine animals.
This year's World Oceans Day theme is "Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet" and is challenging everyone to more carefully consider their use of plastic packaging. The World Economic Forum has stated that by 2050, there will be more plastic waste in the ocean than fish. World Oceans Day and the Ocean Project Foundation challenge each of us to do what we can to help protect what is certainly one of our most precious resources.
