BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING

BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING ON SEAMOUNTS

Our oceans are being plundered for profit by the fishing industry.

We’re calling for the Government to ban bottom trawling on seamounts – underwater mountains that are renowned hotspots for biodiversity.

These are the ‘kauri forests of our ocean’ and it’s up to us to protect them, both at home and way out to sea.

BAN BOTTOM TRAWLING ON SEAMOUNTS

Ministers Nash and Sage: I demand that the NZ Govt bans bottom trawling on seamounts and similar deep sea features, and stop issuing permits for bottom trawling in international waters.
