For us to Thrive, We Need the Ocean to Thrive
For the Ocean to Thrive, We Need its Creatures to Thrive
The only way to say this, is straight up – no ocean, no life. We’re not talking about marine life, but human life. We NEED a clean, healthy and thriving ocean. And the only way to get that is to allow the ocean’s creatures to thrive.
Rozalia Project launched NoFish2048 to work on this problem. 85% of the world’s fisheries have collapsed or are overexploited and on the verge of collapse. 2048 is the is the date when all wild fish species currently fished for food are predicted to collapse.
Ban ALL fishing on the high seas
There is incredibly compelling evidence that if we ban all fishing on the high seas (56% of the world’s ocean), we will see extraordinary long-term gains in the productivity of fish, not just in the high seas, defined as 200 miles offshore of land, but also within 200 miles (defined as a country’s Exclusive Economic Zone, or EEZ). Migratory fish, like tuna, need the opportunity to breed and grow. This solution allows for that – in myriad species for the good of the ocean, for the good of its creatures and for the good of all people.
Ban bottom trawling, period.
Rozalia Project supports sustainable fishing. We support small, family run boats that fish within ecosystem-set quotas using low-by catch methods. We do not support bottom trawling. This fishing technique is akin to bulldozing a forest. There is too much by-catch and too much wholesale destruction. Why dig up and shred your entire garden for one carrot?
