At home and far out to sea, our oceans are being plundered for profit by the fishing industry.
Together we can stop this destruction, and safeguard our precious ocean wildlife but it's going to take all of us working together to do so.
For starters, we should be protecting the most vulnerable ecosystems, and hotspots for biodiversity, from destruction.
Bottom trawling is like bulldozing underwater. It's time we stopped this brutal practice on seamounts - home to a vast array of marine life.
Bottom trawling is one of the most brutal and devastating forms of fishing ever devised, and it’s happening in New Zealand waters. Monstrous fishing vessels drag vast weighted nets through delicate ecosystems, such as submarine mountains, destroying everything in their path.
The Government should not allow the fishing industry to plunder precious ecosystems for profit, when protecting the health of our oceans is paramount to all life on Earth as we know it. We must protect the most vulnerable of marine areas from this pillage.
