Each and every one of us can help to stop the unnecessary waste of marine life caused by bycatch and promote sustainable fishing and seafood consumption - from fishers and fish processors to seafood lovers, supermarkets, restaurants and politicians.
Fishers, fisheries managers and governments clearly need to implement and enforce sustainable fishing practices.
And all fisheries processors, traders, retailers and consumers of seafood need to realize that our seas and oceans have limited sources and exercise their influence when procuring and selling fish products on the market.
Make your fishing operations transparent - Register on www.transparentsea.org
Fisheries which cooperate with WWF can show that they are committed to legal and responsible fishing. They can register voluntarily on our data sharing platform www.transparentsea.org and show that they respect boundaries of sensitive areas and no take zones and use responsible fishing practices. All results and tracks will be published on a regular basis if the fishery agrees.
