Take a minute to think about the oceans

Take a minute to think about the oceans… without them, life would not exist.

• Oceans host 80% of the planet’s biodiversity.

• Over 3 billion people depend on fish as part of their diet.

• 1 in 10 people rely on the fishing industry to make a living.

• Around 30% of fish stocks are overfished.

• By 2050 rising sea temperatures will reduce catches of main fish species.

We all have a role to play to save our ocean:

• Consume a broader range of fish species

• Eat more local fish and support local fishing communities

• Don’t pollute
