UK Government: Ban supertrawlers in the UK’s Marine Protected Areas.
Unbelievably - huge supertrawler ships are allowed to fish in UK Marine Protected Areas - and they even fished there for 123 days in 2019! These massive industrial ships catch hundreds of tonnes of fish every day.

They shouldn’t be operating in areas meant to be ocean sanctuaries, protecting vulnerable ecosystems and iconic wildlife like dolphins and porpoises. It's time to put an end to this.

Can you call on the government to protect the UK’s waters and support local fishing communities? It’s time to ban supertrawlers from fishing in our Marine Protected Areas.

SIGN THE PETITION

To: The UK government

"Ban supertrawlers and other destructive fishing from the UK’s offshore Marine Protected Areas and stand up for ocean protection."

When the UK leaves the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy, our government has a choice: to fulfill its promise to protect our oceans and the communities that depend on them or to carry on letting these destructive and greedy ships fish in supposedly protected parts of our waters.
