After a long and hard fight NGOs finally succeeded as the EU voted for a complete ban of electric fishing today. Electric pulse fishing is a very destructive fishing method with unknown long-term impacts on the seabed and benthic species. After years of campaigning the NGO collective pushed for an end of this method before it even started!
FishAct has been joining the fight against electric pulse fishing, joining meetings in the EU parliament and organizing protests in Bruxelles and Flensburg, Germany. We are more than happy about this decision and will celebrate this victory for all life in our oceans!
