The German Federal Foreign Office celebrates 20 Years of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS): Between the 24th of April and the 22nd of June 2012, the long lasting cooperation between the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea is occasion for numerous events and exhibitions in Berlin and North Germany. The Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean” is displaying exhibition modules on the topic of sustainable fisheries.

The exhibition in the atrium of the Foreign Office in Berlin informs visitors about the work of the Council of Baltic States. The Council of Baltic States was founded in 1992 and has significantly helped changed a “sea of confrontation” into a “sea of freedom”. The anniversary commemorates this development. The eleven Baltic countries present themselves, complemented by contributions on Baltic cooperation in the area of research and development. The Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean” is also present with exhibits on the subject of sustainable fisheries. Playing the fish length game, visitors can find out how large, old and heavy fish should be when fished sustainably. Furthermore a computer game conveys more on the topic of overfishing.
