Prince of Wales launches fight to save overexploited oceans from overfishing

The Prince of Wales is to launch a major international campaign to halt the destruction of the oceans through overfishing.

Prince Charles in his capacity as President of The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment addressed delegates at the annual conference of the foundation at St James’s Palace in London on Friday Jan. 27 and used the opportunity to encourage governments, retailers and the fishing industry to adopt more sustainable practices, pointing to evidence that it could allow more fish to be taken from the seas rather than fewer.

A report published this week by one of the Prince’s charities, the International Sustainability Unit (ISU), argues that fisheries around the world could be pulled back from the brink of collapse by tackling wasteful fishing practices.
