Overfishing is still the most immediate and significant threat to EU Oceans. The damage to our fisheries can be reversed but we must act now to protect our natural resources. At ClientEarth, we want to protect marine ecosystems from the threat of overfishing by making sure the Common Fisheries Policy rules are properly implemented and enforced at the EU and regional level.
