European countries claim to want to protect the ocean and restore biodiversity in this ecological and climate emergency. As such, the EU must finally phase out destructive fishing practices, starting with an immediate ban of bottom trawling in all Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This must be a commitment in the EU Action plan on oceans due to be released after the summer 2021.
As part of our #BanBottomTrawling campaign, we are providing you with the following set of visuals so you can help us spread the word and put an end to this harmful fishing practice that bulldozes the seabed.
The visuals may be used alone online or on social media. Please right-click on an image to view it in another window. To download, simply right-click on the image and choose the “save image as” option.
