Industrial fishing is destroying entire ecosystems, killing marine wildlife, and rapidly wiping out the world’s fish stocks.
Soon, many fish populations may disappear from the oceans – and our tables. Large numbers of whales, dolphins, sharks, rays, marine mammals and seabirds are also being killed as accidental ‘by-catch’. Ocean habits ranging from coral reefs to deep-water sea mounts are under threat from industrial fishing and other human activities. At present, less than 1% of the world’s oceans are marine protected areas.
Fish4ever is a global internet campaign calling for the urgent implementation of sustainable fisheries and the creation of a network of marine parks to safeguard the future of the world’s oceans.
Fish4ever wants your help. Please go to the Support page and send an email. It won’t take a minute, but if enough people send a well-timed message, change begins to happen. We want our politicians to know that even though most of what happens in the oceans is out of sight, it is not out of mind. We want them to show leadership in tackling these difficult issues.
If you give us your email address, we will alert you when there’s an issue that needs your support. We anticipate this being no more than once or twice a month. Please pass the word about Fish4ever through your own networks – together we can make a difference. Thank you.
