We need to act before our seas are damaged beyond repair and the fish stock is over.
Illegal fishing practices are exhausting our fish stock and degrading our marine environment. This is threatening the livelihood of fishing communities as well.
The agriculture ministry, in charge of fisheries, can put an end to this. The agriculture minister Sharad Pawar needs to regulate industrial fishing in our seas.
You should ask agriculture minister Sharad Pawar to manage India’s fishing reserves sustainably because livelihoods depend on them.
The Greenpeace ship Esperanza will be in India to keep an eye on the destructive and illegal fishing practices in our oceans. You can be on this voyage. All you need to do is get more and more of your friends to sign this petition.
How do you get on to the ship? One of the top five people, who get the highest number of friends to sign this petition, get to go on the Esperanza.
More people will help put pressure on Minister Sharad Pawar to act. At the same time it will help you get on-board the Esperanza. Sign the petition and ask your friends to sign it as well.
Fishing doesn't have to be a dirty word. Do it sustainably.
Thanks a billion!
