that affect me ?
Marine ecological balance and security of food are endangered
Some marine species are at risk of extinction.
Marine mammals, sea turtles and birds are accidentally caught in nets
causes that ?
The damage from industrial fishing
We catch 5 times more more fish today than in 1950¼ of these fish are ground into fish meal to feed farmed animals
More destructive fishing techniquesBottom trawling and other fishing techniques plough and destroy marine habitats
Some trawlers are equipped with nets of 23 000 m²the equivalent of 4 football pitches ! Electric fishing is devastating for the fauna and sea beds
What can I do
about it ?
Buy products from sustainable and integrated fish farming
Fish from responsible fisheries
Eat local produce
Short food channels and seasonal products
Respect the sea and its inhabitants
Respect the rules = fishing seasons, variety and size of fish
