Pesca sostenible para un planeta azul vivo

Pesca sostenible para un planeta azul vivo

The ocean dominates our watery world’s landscape, covering more than two-thirds of it. It produces more than half the world’s oxygen; without which we would perish. We rely on it for seafood, rain, medicine and leisure.

Most of our global commodity trade occurs through it, thus making it a vital source of goods, services and jobs. It holds more life than land, and more than half the world’s population lives along its shores.

While oceans are vast and vital, they are also overburdened. Overfishing, pollution and climate change present a huge risk to ecosystems, food security and its many unique biomes. Some researchers have suggested that there will be almost no fish left in the ocean by the middle of the century if current fishing trends continue.

Ten fish species represent most of the products in our supermarkets. Species like tuna, salmon and shrimp are key among them. Our approach revolves around increasing transparency and commitment among key actors to address the exploitation of the ocean and people.

Hechos

With nearly five million tonnes fished every year, tuna constitutes one of the most important fisheries in the world.
60% of the world’s fish stocks are fully exploited, meaning they have reached or will soon reach their sustainable limit, additionally 33% are already over-exploited and on their way to collapse
Salmon’s popularity has skyrocketed over the years in Europe and beyond. It is now the second most farmed seafood product.

Our Work

Our work with French retailers on palm oil and charcoal served as the doorway to our work in oceans. Since 2016, we have been working with retailers such as E.Leclerc, Les Mousquetaires and Casino, focussing on key species in their supply chains such as tuna, salmon and trout. In addition to supply chain analysis, we work to find collaborative solutions with businesses that raise awareness and improve standards. By acting as a facilitator between market and field initiatives, we aim to positively impact marine resources and the people dependent on them.

Our current work on oceans:

  • Tuna working group: Engaging the French market for action towards stronger, more responsible, tuna stocks management and respectful working conditions for employees, both at sea and on land.
  • Shrimp project: Improving breeding practices in shrimp farms by implementing a pilot methodology in Ecuador.
