Friend of the Sea School Awareness Program at Australian International School of Hong Kong
Friend of the Sea, the certification program for seafood from sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, organized Friend of the Sea awareness days in Hong Kong in cooperation with the Australian International School Hong Kong and supported by the companies Lee Fish and MM Fresh.
In February and March 2015, more than one hundred students had the opportunity to participate in a set of four fascinating, interactive lessons to learn relevant conservation principles.
The kids were introduced to the world of fishing and aquaculture through the key topics of biodiversity, overfishing, sustainable fishing methods and aquaculture techniques, and responsible consumption. Nicki Robertson – Teacher
The lessons, now available online for free consultation, included interactive videos, multiple choices and role-games. The kids enthusiastically identified themselves with the fishermen and Friend of the Sea auditors, trying out various fishing methods.
The school awareness initiative was sponsored by Lee Fish and MM Fresh. Lee Fish is a major New Zealand fishery and seafood supplier, marketing sustainably fished and farmed seafood worldwide. And MM Fresh is a Lee Fish Hong Kong distributor company, which introduced the school program into Australian International School Hong Kong.
