Cli­mate, Bio­di­ver­si­ty & Overfishing

Our Fish

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.
