La présente brochure décrit, dans un style accessible à tous, les principaux aspects du Code de conduite pour une pêche responsable, afin de susciter une meilleure prise de conscience des buts et objectifs du Code, et d'encourager sa mise en application effective dans toutes les pêches de capture et dans l'aquaculture.

For Middle Grade readers. Enjoy a day at the beach as we walk through sand, jump the waves, hear sea birds calling to each other as sea creatures seek food and shelter in a wondrous, hidden ocean biome. This book can stand alone or act as a companion to "The Ocean's Way" which tells the story of eleven year old Holly's learning experience with marine life in Florida. A sample chapter appears after the Glossary. The book contains 37 unrhymed poems ( diamante, tanka, anagram) about the ocean and ocean life. Each poem is accompanied by a beautiful color photograph for visual impact. All facts are well-researched and concise. If the scientific classifications appear unfamiliar, in common terms the topics include coral reefs, sand, sea shells, tides, tsunami, waves, dolphins, orcas, manatees, pilot whales, polar bears, sea lions, seals, sea otters, walruses, whales, albatross, gulls, penguins, sea anemones, sea turtles, horseshoe crabs, rays, sea horses, sharks, starfish, crabs, crayfish, hermit crabs, lobsters, clams, squid, mussels, octopus and snails. The poems are organized alphabetically under the headings beach, marine mammals, marine birds, marine animals-cnidaria, marine reptiles, chelicerata arthropods, carnivorous fish, decapod crustaceans, cephalopod mollusks and mollusks. The Glossary contains definitions, parts of speech and a pronunciation guide. Experience the adventure.
