Make Fishing Fair

Fish are disappearing from the oceans, and fishers in developing countries are hauling in empty nets--all because of massive overfishing by rich countries, fueled by billions in subsidies every year. Already, 90% of big fish like tuna and marlin are gone. It's unfair trade, it's killing the oceans, and it's endangering a critical food supply.

Next month, the WTO will propose new global fishing rules. This month, finance ministers around the world are deciding what those rules should be. That gives us a chance to make a stand--to tell our trade ministers and government leaders to oppose the subsidies that lead to overfishing, and to support fairness and sustainability for generations to come.
