Protecting marine environments, biodiversity and livelihoods

Overfishing and unscrupulous activities by illegal fishers are leaving our oceans on the edge of total collapse, and as operators look to plunder our exhausted oceans further, to supply Western markets with cheap seafood, many resort to slave labour - enforced by violence - to keep costs down.

EJF is working to protect the oceans, end illegal fishing and stamp out the human rights abuses driven by this illicit activity. By doing so we aim to protect the 3.5 billion people that depend on our oceans, and the magnificent and varied wildlife that call them home.
