OVERFISHING - According to the WWF, the United States is one of the largest markets for imported seafood in the world, with more than 5.3 billion pounds passing through the border each year, worth almost $18 billion annually. Unfortunately, right now we simply cannot tell if the seafood we eat is legally caught from the ocean because our current laws are not strong enough to trace from bait to plate. That fact, coupled with ocean pollution and climate change, is degrading fish stocks to the point where there will be a food crisis as the population rises. A Global Commission has been set up to tackle these problems - see the links to your representative below.

 

 

WORLD RECORD - The fishing fleet at Hastings is the world's largest that are beach launched, and because the boats are medium sized by virtue of being light enough to be hauled up the shingle using cable winches, they fish sustainably - rather than monster trawlers that grab everything they can and wreak havoc in the process. Sustainable methods of fishing are need for blue growth and a truly circular economy. That is turn will lead to food security. The trick is to get to that happy situation without rocking the boat(s) too much for blue growth success.

OTHER BEAUTIFUL SEA CREATURES

 

Whales and dolphins are a group of mammals called cetaceans that spend their entire lives in water. Today there are around 77 different species of cetaceans, inhabiting our oceans from the cold Antarctic Continent in the south to the Arctic Sea around the North Pole. There are two very different groups of cetaceans: Baleen whales and Toothed whales. Whales and dolphins are among the most intelligent and mysterious creatures on our earth.
