World Animal Protection UK and the GGGI have just released a new video outlining some solutions and positive engagement with fishers happening in the UK. Hopefully we can inspire similar initiatives here in Canada.
Lost gear is a major global concern and it’s forward thinking solutions and initiatives like these that will help lead to a more sustainable future for the fishing industry. This is a great step forward to helping solve the problem – only through engaging fishers in positive ways can we see real tangible solutions to the betterment of everyone. If you’re a local fisher interested in getting involved in positive change for your industry and / or championing the cause, we encourage you to contact us to discuss how you might be able to help.
