Marinet Petition

EU fishing subsidy payments total over 1 billion Euros annually, and are strongly implicated in the maintenance of over-capacity in the European fishing fleet which, in turn, leads to over-fishing. Over-fishing is not only destroying wild fish stocks – a key food resource – but is also causing severe damage to the marine ecosystem. This ecosystem supports both large animals, like dolphins and seabirds, to the smallest creatures, like shrimps and tiny zooplankton. We cannot do this sort of damage to the marine world and believe we can escape the consequences.

Marinet have a petition regarding these payments and a video explaining the problem both of which can be seen by clicking on the image below.
