European Fish Weeks 2012

End overfishing or fishing will be over!

June 8 – August 31 2012

Deutsch  English  Español  Français  ελληνικά - Greek  Italiano  Nederlands  Polski  Português

 

 
Overfishing is emptying the oceans of fish. This summer, European Fish Weeks is the opportunity to tell politicians to, “end overfishing or fishing will be over". Politicians are responsible for making the decisions that will end overfishing; citizens have the responsibility to encourage and support them in making these decisions. European Fish Weeks is an opportunity to make your voice heard.
 

Get involved

 
EU fisheries can be fixed and you can be part of the solution. Make your voice heard by getting involved in Fish Weeks activities near you. Events are listed below and in our events section (on a Google map). 
 
You can also organise your own event and create a human fish shape to end overfishing. For some creative ideas on what to do, download the fish shape and description.

 

If you or your organisation are interested in participating in Fish Weeks, or would like more information about joining OCEAN2012, please contact Kelly Agathos, +32 2 274 16 28.
 
Find out more about OCEAN2012 in our identity leaflet and how overfishing impacts you in this series of OCEAN2012 briefings.
 

European Fish Week 2011

 
The theme of last year’s European Fish Week was how our marine environment used to be healthier, how overfishing has changed this and how the EU’s Common Fisheries Poilcy (CFP) reform is an opportunity to change this. 
 
Around 50 events were organised by OCEAN2012 member groups around Europe, including interviews and events with fisheries ministers, fishermen and scientists and a photographic exhibition that combined historic archive images of fishing, infographics, and photography of present day commercial fishing. 
 

OCEAN2012

OCEAN2012 is an alliance of over 160 organisations dedicated to putting an end to overfishing in the European Union.
