World Trade Organisation to propose new fishing rules

Fish are disappearing from the oceans because of massive overfishing by rich countries, fueled by billions in subsidies every year. It’s unfair trade, and it’s killing the oceans.

Already, 90% of big fish like tuna and marlin are gone. If nothing changes, many fish populations will collapse beyond recovery-destroying ecosystems and harming those who rely on fish as their main source of protein.

Next month, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) will come forward with a new proposal for global fishing rules. This month, the WTO is talking to finance ministers around the world about what those rules should be. That gives us a critical window to make a stand-to tell our trade ministers to oppose the subsidized overfishing and support fairness and sustainability for generations to come.

The WTO invite you to email your Trade Minister to support them.
