UK Sustainable Fishing

Sustainable fishing has a huge potential to improve the balance of marine ecosystems and the profitability of the fishing industry.

Oceana research shows that UK catches could dramatically increase in just a few years’ time, and provide more food, more jobs and more money if sustainable fishing practices are put in place. The recipe for achieving this is simple: We can rebuild fish stocks by setting catch limits according to scientific advice, protect areas where fish breed and grow and end destructive fishing techniques.

Fisheries are in the spotlight following Brexit negotiations and the decision-makers should seize the opportunity to ensure a sustainable, brilliant future for marine resources.
