2017 was the first full year with the new Blue Ocean Website and we are happy to say that we posted over 200 articles focusing on a broad spectrum of ocean related issues. We could not have done this without the generous support of all of those that contributed their own thoughtful and insightful ocean stories. These stories help you stay connected.
So here’s a very heartfelt “thank you” to our Blue Ocean contributors. We look forward to seeing their thoughts in Blue Ocean “News” again in 2018, and for those of you that have yet to add your voice to our chorus, we urge you to bring your stories to our ocean community through the New Year and beyond.
Here is a list of the 2017 Blue Ocean contributors, in alphabetical order and with links to their articles. We apologize if we missed anyone or anything.
