World Ocean Day began on 8 June 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. However, it is not an officially recognized secular holiday by the United Nations as of yet.

World Ocean Day is an opportunity every year to honor the oceans and products they provide, such as seafood, as well as marine lives themselves for aquariums and pets. The oceans also provide sea-lanes for international trade. Global pollution and over-consumption of marine lives have resulted in drastically dwindling population of the majority of species.
