Help Protect the North Sea Ecosystem by Reducing Sandeel Fishing
Sandeels are under threat from industrial fishing for salmon farms and livestock feed. They are "the most important forage fish in the North Sea' supporting baleen whales, seals and seabirds such as puffins and kittiwakes." This landmark consultation could help end sandeel fishing.
However, we believe the UK Government should grasp this opportunity to promote plant-based diets as partial and temporary fishing closures create short-term solutions for long-term problems. Please comment HERE.
