Today is World Oceans Day! About 70% of our planet is covered by ocean, but less than 5% of the it has been explored. While there's still a lot we don't know about the ocean, we do know that it is an important and irreplaceable resource for the entire world - providing seafood, helping regulate global climate and much more. At Sitka National Historical Park, we have an amazing tidal flat right outside our visitor center, looking out over Sitka Sound and the Pacific Ocean. How will you be celebrating our oceans today?
* * * SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT * * *
Next Thursday, June 8, we celebrate World Oceans Day. This is a day to honor, help protect, and conserve the world’s oceans.
Even though it’s not a scheduled movie night day, our Team just decided we wanted to do our part in raising awareness regarding our oceans. Especially since - here in Amed - we all live right by the ocean.
We are excited to announce the screening of the much acclaimed documentary, SHARKWATER, by Director Rob Stewart.
Stewart won 38 international awards for Sharkwater. Rob however sadly and abruptly passed away last January, on a dive, while filming the sequel of Sharkwater called "Sharkwater: Extinction".
This special screening is also our way to pay tribute to Rob’s incredible work and legacy.
Driven by passion fed from a life-long fascination with sharks, Stewart - in this exceptional documentary - debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.

According to the UN, Aquaculture is the only scalable way in which to meet a growing populations increasing demand on protein. According to Leonardo DiCaprio, Environmental Ambassador to the United Nations, Sustainable aquaculture is the way to save the world’s oceans. Aquaculture, or farming of fish and other seafood, holds great promise as a solution to the increasing pressures on our ocean resources. Fish farming has been practiced, in some parts of the world, for hundreds of years. Today, half of the seafood eaten in the U.S. is farmed. To help meet the growing global demand for seafood, aquaculture is growing fast. The environmental impact ...of fish farming varies widely, depending on the species being farmed, the methods used and where the farm is located. When good practices are used, it's possible to farm seafood in a way that has very little impact to the environment. Such operations limit habitat damage, disease, escapes of farmed fish and the use of wild fish as feed. Join us, The Chef Agency and Wild Fish Direct on World Oceans Day for this special luncheon and conversation about Sustainable aquaculture and the path to save our oceans!
Presented by Verlasso Salmon. Harmoniously raising salmon off the coast of the Patagonia is Verlasso's approach to aquaculture. The first ocean raised farmed salmon to ever receive a good buy alternative recommendation by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch. Their goal is to always maintain harmony, or balance, with nature. That means keeping the demand for salmon in line with more sustainable, environmentally conscious farming methods.

The World Ocean's Day is a day to appreciate the ocean and think about environmental preservation of the sea.
It is the world's largest "movement to think about the environment of the ocean" which the United Nations was invoked to the world and is currently being implemented in more than 100 countries.
Japan is surrounded by a rich ocean, and has been living with the sea since ancient times.
Among them, it forms a food culture such as sushi and soup, and its culture still remains.
However, it is said that world-wide consumption of fishery products, seafood eaten until now can not be eaten in the future.
