Overview

According to the FAO, destructive fishing practices like bottom trawling dump more than 7 million tons of marine organisms every year, while obliterating ocean habitats like coral reefs and seamounts that need decades or even centuries to recover. Oceana works to ensure that fish are taken out of the ocean only at sustainable rates based on science, and to protect habitats by drastically reducing by-catch and its effects on the marine ecosystem.

Oceana acknowledges the generous support of EU LIFE Programme.
