Oceana | Protecting the World's Oceans

Save Ocean Wildlife From Brutal Fisheries

Dirty fishing kills. Dolphins become entangled in nets that cut into their skin, whales are dragged down by lines of lobster traps, and even sharks die needlessly on lines of harmful hooks. This is all avoidable – there are other, cleaner ways to fish.

Oceana has identified nine of the worst bycatch offenders – fisheries with destructive gear that combined throw away almost as much as they keep. Help us stop this waste. Your $10 donation will fight irresponsible fishing methods that kill dolphins, sea turtles, and other wildlife and help us protect ocean ecosystems around the world.
