It is time to ask: What can we do for the ocean? On 21 November is World Fisheries Day – how do you envision a healthy ocean that can support climate mitigation and sustainable fisheries? What if we were to rally together for stopping fuel guzzling and destructive bottom trawling and giving low impact artisanal fishers a chance to make a living and produce good quality food from the ocean? Together with a large alliance of civil society organisations and hundreds of scientists from around the world we demand that the WTO finally decides to stop harmful fisheries subsidies. The 12th Ministerial Conference starting on 30 November is the best chance to deliver on this long ignored promise. That is likely to put the worst offenders out of business and reduce overfishing and illegal practices. That would be a big win for the ocean, the climate and all of us. Be part of the vision and join the change journey.
