Overfishing and damaging fishing practices have reduced many fish stocks and harmed the seabed, threatening marine wildlife and coastal communities. The UK government has opened a public consultation asking how we think they should take care of fish stocks after Brexit through a new Bill.
Now we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to fix our fisheries and make sure our seas are full of life long into the future… but we only have until 12 September 2018 to make our voices heard.
We have a unique chance to tell decision-makers that UK fisheries must be sustainable. Tell the Secretary of State for the Environment, Michael Gove, why we need sustainable fisheries: the whole marine ecosystem, the fishing industry and our coastal communities all depend on it.
The Marine Conservation Society has made it easy for us all to participate. Their pre-filled response covers all of the areas that they think should be at the core of the new Bill.
