OCEAN RESCUE: SAVE THE TUNA SUMMIT

Sign the petition!

To all parties of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT):

Overfishing has led bluefin tuna to the brink of extinction. We urge you to agree to a global recovery plan, including 0-6,000 tonnes catch quotas, effective and transparent enforcement, strict penalties against violator countries, and the creation of protected spawning reserves. Our fishing communities -- and life in our oceans -- are at risk.

Bluefin tuna will be wiped out unless drastic action is taken to stop overfishing at the world summit going on right now. Without these magnificent fish, oceanic ecosystems could collapse.

This little known summit is the last chance for Tuna, and elite and even criminal cartels with powerful political allies are lobbying hard to block a vital recovery plan, putting short-term profits before the future of our oceans and fishing economies.

If we can show governments that the world's eyes are on them, the cartels could be exposed and an urgent survival plan could be forced through. Sign the petition to save this ecologically crucial fish and forward this email -- it will be delivered to the negotiators and the media at the summit:
