FishAct is a conservation movement of volunteers from all over Europe with the aim of preserving healthy oceans full of life.
The voluntary fisheries observers, the Citizen Inspectors, go on undercover missions documenting and exposing illegal fishing activities in European fishing ports, markets and coastal areas. Over the years FishAct has run various investigations into illegal fishing activities in both the Baltic and Mediterranean Sea. Field research included e.g. monitoring of illegal bluefin tuna fishing in Croatia, tracking of illegal driftnet use in the Tyrrhenian Sea, dynamite fishing off Tunisia and deep-sea shark fishing and finning in Morocco.
In addition, FishAct organizes public events to raise awareness of overfishing and illegal fishing practices, inspiring a broad audience to make positive changes for healthier oceans. We have given more than 100 public talks, run stalls at events in more than 12 different countries and collaborated with multiple organisations and individuals across Europe.
We need your support! FishAct is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers and funded exclusively by donations. All donations go towards our projects and campaigns. Contact us to learn more about our work or to become part of the movement!
