Help stop fish extinction
Current fishing practices in Europe have pushed us to the edge.
If they continue unchecked:
- Fish species - like cod, tuna, mackerel and herring - will become extinct
- The marine ecosystem which supported them will collapse and never return
Now the rules governing European fishing - known as the Common Fisheries Policy - are being rewritten. And the UK Government is involved.
To follow EU law, the rewritten rules have to ensure that all commercial fish stocks are restored to a sound and healthy condition by 2020.
But instead, EU proposals only aim to keep fish stocks at their current, much depleted levels.
The UK Government is a key player in the negotiations. And they're hanging in the balance.
Please tell UK Fisheries Minister, Richard Benyon, to do all he can to make sure:
- The new rules follow EU law
- Fish stocks are restored to a sound and healthy condition by 2020
