Climate, Biodiversity & Overfishing
The ocean is facing multiple stressors – of these, overfishing is the greatest. The benefits of ending overfishing are clear — the only element missing is political will. By reframing the issue as action on climate and biodiversity, Our Fish is elevating fisheries management and industry focussed negotiations to an issue of broad political and public concern, in response to the call for decisive action on the environmental crisis.
Our Fish are executing an innovative strategy that commissions and communicates a series of scientific reports on the devastating and unnecessary impacts of overfishing on marine food webs, ecosystems, protected species, and the ocean’s capacity to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change — shifting the debate on overfishing and raising its importance to those with the ambition and capacity to deliver on a European Green Deal.
