How can you help?
1. Check the label
Overfishing is one of the greatest threats our ocean faces and global fish populations are rapidly decreasing due to high demand and irresponsible fishing practices. Help keep fisheries and fish stock healthy by reducing your fish intake if you can.
2. Reduce your carbon emissions
In the last 50 years, the ocean has absorbed 90% of the excess heat created by burning fossil fuels. This has led to warmer waters, which can affect where fish swim, bleach coral reefs, change how marine species reproduce, speed up sea-level rise and even alter weather events up on land. Simple steps to reduce your personal emissions include walking or cycling rather than driving, switching to a mainly plant-based diet, or shopping more responsibly.
3. Avoid single-use plastics
Single-use plastics (like non-reusable water bottles, take-away packaging, plastic bags and straws) pollute our ocean, can destroy ecosystems and endanger marine life. Stay clear!
