The Problem

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 Solution

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.
