Right now EU governments bordering the #Baltic Sea are considering what to do with fishing limits for 2019. Scientists have advised that iconic fish stocks #cod and #herring are in extremely poor health. We need to give these fish stocks a break so they can recover to even a fraction of their former glory. If governments do their job right and follow the scientific advice, we will get it back in spades - more fish, more jobs and more profits.

At #folkemødet we met with the #Danmark fisheries minister @evakjerhansen to talk sustainable fisheries and the plight of the iconic #Baltic #cod. These guys are in major trouble - western Baltic cod has critically low populations and eastern Baltic cod are reproducing at 20cm length now compared to 38cm in the 1990's! While the Minister poured us a coffee, we asked her to respect scientific advice and set fishing limits at the most sustainable levels this year, as well ensuring the rules are monitored and enforced with better at-sea control - so that we can rebuild our fish stocks, and the sea and communities that depend on them! #overfishing #endoverfishing #saveouroceans #saveourseas #CFPreality #EM4fish #dkpol #eupol #sustainableseafood #ourocean #fish #fishing #fisheries @wwfdk @oceanaeurope @greenpeacedk @pewenvironment @fishsec
At #folkemødet, we spoke to hundreds of people who support our work to #endoverfishing in #danmark and #EU seas. This year we're asking Fisheries Minister @evakjerhansen to save our Baltic cod and end wasteful and illegal discarding of fish at sea.

Fish Dependence Day is the date on which a country begins relying on fish from outside its own waters to meet demand, due to depletion of domestic supplies through a combination of overfishing, mismanagement, and domestic demand.

#Agrifish: EU Fisheries Ministers Staying Up All Night To Get Quota (Trying to keep on #overfishing?) With a little bit of #cfpreality it could all be different. Here's the writing on the wall tonight in #Brussels
Via @fishlovecampaign “It breaks my heart to think about what we are doing to our seas through overfishing, especially when you realise how easy the solution is”, said award-winning British actress Imelda Staunton, Oscar nominee and Harry Potter star, posing with a blonde ray, one example of a species that is caught and discarded as bycatch. “All it needs is for our politicians to have the courage to follow the scientific advice, and our seas will spring back to health and life for the benefit of all.” #endoverfishing #cfpreality #agrifish #fish #photo by @jillianedelstein
"98.4% of the European eel population is already GONE. Continuing to fish for them  is like hunting pandas!" - says @florencesaharadrak.

End Overfishing - projection of artwork by Vincent Glowinski aka Bonom on a building in Brussels, calling for EU fisheries ministers to #endoverfishing in European waters. EU fisheries ministers are in Brussels to negotiate fishing limits for over 120 of North Sea and Atlantic fish - in previous years, quotas have been set far beyond scientific advice.  #CFPreality #streetart #bruxelles
“My religion is nature and too many fish are being taken out of the sea. I found the Wolf Fish very slippery and slimy and could hear him say ‘Please release me! Let me go!” - actor and darts star Bobby George, for @fishlovecampaign  calling for for Europe to #endoverfishing #bobbygeorge #photo by @jillianedelstein
