We Need to Stop Supporting Overfishing
More than a billion people rely on the oceans for their main source of protein. What will happen to these people if the ocean is empty?
Many governments are paying their fishing fleets to fish longer, harder, and farther than would otherwise be possible. If this level of fishing continues, the fish we eat today could be gone within our lifetimes.
We need to urge the World Trade Organization to put a limit on fishery subsidies. Tell WTO Ambassador Ron Kirk we need to save our fish for the future.
