Get involved in the campaign to end overfishing

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; we have the responsibility to encourage and support them in making that decision. Make your voice heard by coming to a Fish Weeks event, organize your own event or get involved online!

In addition to Tweeting and Facebooking individual and/or human fish shape photo(s) from events and online activities, we are collecting the best images from around Europe to give to decisions-makers; making your voice heard where and when it matters.
