OFF THE SOUTH COAST UK, ISLE OF WIGHT 

THIS VESSEL WAS BANNED BY AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT  HAS CAUSED HAVOCK TO FISHING GROUNDS OFF WEST AFRICA ,AND IS NOW DEVASTATING OUR WATERS  

As we all go about our daily routines, just 12 miles away in the English channel off the ISLE OF WIGHT, our seas are being raped and plundered by the collosal   10,000 ton super trawler the "MARGIRIS" and "ANNIE HILLINA" Dutch owned by PARLEUTIET VAN DER PLAS, this company operate and fish the biggest super trawlers in the world .

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION say  that 12 plus Supertrawlers have caught and killed over 10,000 dolphins this year 2019 in the SOUTHWEST APPROACHES .U.K.

In the last 50 years we have taken 90% of the worlds commercial fish stock from the oceans which has taken millions of years to stock.  The worlds fisheries must stop chasing the last 10%

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION  EXPOSE  MSC  

 marine stewardship council 

 who's brand  label can be clearly seen in U.K. supermarkets identifying that this fish is "responsibly sourced" and "sustainably sourced" when the fact is that it is clearly not !

Cod is being imported from a country that openly enjoys and celebrates the killing of dolphins and whales: the Faroe Islands.

Last year the MSC made £24million by the selling of its "sustainable" branding to supermarkets and fishing companies

Mackerel stocks devasted  to "endangered" level

Bass stock devasted so that anglers are not allowed to even catch one for their dinner, whilst the trawlers continue to fish them in UK waters (catching dolphins as bycatch to be mutilated and discarded)

Dolphins  being exterminated as "pests" in U.K. waters

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION call for U.K. government to change law in this country, as America has, to make it illegal to harm, intend to harm or kill a dolphin.

U.K. FISHERMEN INVOLVED IN THIS BRUTAL ACT OF SHARK FINNING CRIME

In July 2019 it has been revealed via U.K. customs documents showing that 50 tons of shark fins have been exported to Spain from Britain , in last 2 years ,that's equates to 50,000 sharks have been brutally killed for there fins and dumped back into the sea alive ,and then die a slow agonising death.

HERES WHY WE NEED A SPECIAL BOAT 

1200 HUNDRED DEAD  DOLPHINS WASHED UP ASHORE 2019

ITS MAJOR

"CRIME IN OUR OCEANS "

VERY DISTRESSINGLY !  Over the past 9 weeks, since early 2019 , dozens of fishing vessels deploying hundreds of miles of monofilament gill nets and dozens of trawlers  have killed over 10,000 dolphins YES 10,000  ! whilst fishing for spawning sea bass .

As many as 4000 Cornish dolphins could have been killed by fishing nets, putting the region’s famous dolphin population at risk of being wiped out.

Fatal injuries

According to scientists investigating the discovery of 1000 dead animals on British and French beaches this spring, the majority of the dead dolphins suffered fatal injuries inflicted by fishing gear.

It is estimated that the bodies of 3000 more dolphins did not reach the shore – bringing the death toll to 4000.

It’s thought at least 100,000 dolphins have been killed in the last twenty years.


This is conveniently termed as BYCATCH by fishermen and authority , this is totally unacceptable as the fishermen KNOW full well the Dolphins are amongst the shoals of bass

This why the use monofilament nets need to be banned worldwide now !We only support the traditional Northern Spanish tuna fishing technique of hand pole fishing, totally sustainable way to preserve fish stock .

1200 dead dolphins have washed up on French beaches in the Vendée, Charente Maritime, and Gironde.English beaches too ,even the Isle of Wight . These deaths are only the tip of the iceberg, since more than 90% of the corpses, often gutted, so they sink to seabed, thats possibly over 12,000 killed maybe more .

ITS "CRIME IN OUR OCEANS"

Most of the bodies found are mutilated, with severed fins, gaff hook marks, deep cuts, FROM FISHERMENS KNIFES its genocide  ! These dolphins, which spend winter in the Bay of Biscay, are victims of non-selective fishing operations (including English trawlers, Danish seiners, German ,French and gillnetters  targeting sea bass and hake for the French market. According to scientists who have been documenting the deaths, the dolphins are also being killed by French and foreign vessels

This is BLUE MURDER !

Sea Sheppard have watch this crime going on for 12 weeks and have done nothing to stop the crime .just watched it happen !

 Its time for us to step up the action to protect, help or support us commission our patrol vessel.   We continue to lobbing government to take action to protect dolphins

but the government are not showing any support

to stop this so we have to take direct action at sea .

THE LEVEL OF CORRUPTION IN OUR SEAS

Maritime Executive 2019-08-13 21:04:54

In a new in-depth report, American data analysis nonprofit C4ADS has analyzed the opaque and little-understood global business networks which make large scale illegal fishing possible. The authors called for national regulators to require more transparency in fishing vessel control and ownership, which would make it easier to pursue criminal fishing enterprises on shore.

Over the span of 15 months, C4ADS identified and studied 29 business networks that engage in suspected illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU fishing). The analysts' dataset included the identities and movements of 150 vessels, along with more than 2,000 companies, individuals and support vessels connected to their activities. A network analysis based on this data allowed the researchers to reveal connections among the investors, companies, owners and vessels engaged in IUU fishing.

According to C4ADS, the companies that operated suspected IUU fishing vessels often use complex ownership structures, much like many legitimate maritime firms. Using shell companies in jurisdictions that offer high secrecy and flagging with registries that offer lower transparency can insulate IUU fishing activity from scrutiny, C4ADS asserts.

These opaque structures can make it difficult to determine who owns and controls a particular vessel, and the report's authors called on regulators to require beneficial ownership information when licensing or registering fishing vessels. "Large-scale reform is needed in the global fishing sector to improve how vessel owners report ownership information and prevent the exploitation of opaque jurisdictions and flag states. Without adequate laws and regulations to enforce transparency among vessels at sea and their owners onshore, the ecological, economic, and security risks posed by IUU fishing will continue unabated," C4ADS concluded.

With some effort, the team was still able to identify a subset of vessel owners by collating currently available information. As an example, using Chinese public records, the C4ADS team was able to determine that the sole beneficial owner of the IUU fishing vessel Jing Yuan 626 is the Chinese government. (Argentine forces opened fire on the Jing Yuan 626 in February 2018 after catching her operating illegally in the Argentine EEZ.)

£120,000,000 scandal of fish stomachs from a Mexican fish is wiping out dolphins caught in their nets, to extinction

02/05/2019


China’s craze for the swim bladder of the totoaba, a giant Mexican fish, has driven it close to extinction. Dubbed “aquatic cocaine," trade in the delicacy is banned, but smuggling is still a major problem. United States, a major transit point.

Since the beginning of 2018, Chinese customs authorities have uncovered five cases of smuggling in totoaba swim bladders, also known as fish maw. Thirty-two people have been arrested and £120 million) worth of contraband seized.

But is this action enough to save the totoaba?

The decline of a species

In China, swim bladder is popular for its believed nutritional and medicinal properties. Sold dried, prices vary widely from a few hundred yuan per kilogramme to hundreds of thousands of yuan, depending on the species of origin. Trade in the maw of most species is not banned – selling the totoaba swim bladder, however, has been illegal since 1976, when the fish was added to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

The swim bladder of the totoaba is particularly prized due to its large size and thickness, as well as its perceived health benefits. It is not the first victim of the Chinese taste for maw. The Chinese bahaba, native to the waters off south-eastern China, has a swim bladder with similar properties. Its popularity led to market prices so high it was known as “golden maw” – by weight, it cost more than gold. This led to overfishing and a rapid decline in the species’ population. Although trade was banned on the Chinese mainland in 1989, numbers have continued to fall. In 2006 it was added to the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List as critically endangered.

WHATS GOING ON   !    IN THE PORT OF LIVERPOOL WITH FISH LANDINGS FROM DUTCH AND BELGIUM BEAM TRAWLERS ?

There has been an explosion of foreign beam trawlers fishing in our Irish sea, many equipped with electric pulse fishing equipment banned by EU law, they are killing our fishery and all life on the seabed, with fish landings in Liverpool concealed in sealed containers then unloaded direct in trucks and shipped to E.U.. without any checks.  We demand further information to save our seas!!!

 VICTORY !   

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION    MARINET &  BLOOM

we have campaigned tirelessly to stop this destruction to our seas, but its not over yet . 2021 is not acceptable ,it needs banning fully now !

so we continue to fight !

  Pulse beaming banned

Electric currents have no mercy on marine life: the whole marine life is electrocuted. Quantified data are lacking with regards to the impacts of such an electrocution on marine life, especially on electro-sensitive species (sharks and rays),[1] but also on eggs, juveniles, plankton, fishes’ physiology, water chemistry etc. There is one notable study by Dutch IMARES, which showed that 50 to 70% of large cods caught by pulse trawls had their spine broken after an electric shock.[2]

18th February 2019

EU bans pulse beaming from July 2021 – 42 licences to be withdrawn this year

Electric pulse beam trawling effort will be slashed by 50% this year, and the method will be banned from July 2021, reports Tim Oliver

EU co-legislators agreed on the ban last week as part of an overall agreement on changes to the complex EU technical measures regulation.

The pulse ban will be phased in, with 42 of the current 84 pulse fishing licences to be withdrawn this year, and the remaining 42 by July 2021. Six vessels will be allowed to continue research into pulse fishing after 2021, and must follow a protocol validated by the European Commission’s scientific body. The Commission said it will ‘continue to follow ongoing scientific developments closely’.

Dutch and EU ‘gave hidden subsidies to pulse beam fleet’

30th April 2018

Commission ‘complicit’, claims Bloom green group

The green group that is campaigning to ban electric pulse beam trawling in the EU has accused the Dutch government of failing to declare large subsidies it has given to the Dutch pulse fleet, reports Tim Oliver

Paris-based Bloom, headed by Claire Nouvian, has filed a formal complaint to the European Commission against the Netherlands. This follows its first complaint at the end of last year alleging that most of the 84 licences awarded to the Dutch pulse beam fleet are illegal (Fishing News, 18 January, ‘Battle over electric fishing’).

In its second complaint, Bloom says the Dutch government has failed to comply with European law by being the only major fishing nation in Europe that has not published data about the public subsidies that were allocated to Dutch fleets between 2007 and 2014, the period in which ‘the vast majority of conversions’ took place.

Using public data from 2015 onwards, that the Netherlands has made available, Bloom has calculated that the Dutch pulse fleet has received €5.7m of public money since then.

Frédéric Le Manach, Bloom’s scientific director, said: “Since August 2015 alone, the Netherlands has distributed almost €6m to its electric fishing vessels – but the vast majority of conversions took place between 2007 and 2014 (Fig 1). This suggests that a large-scale financial scandal is looming, in addition to the ecological, social and political scandal that we have revealed on this issue.”

Bloom says all other major EU fishing nations except the Netherlands have conformed with the obligation to publicise data showing the beneficiaries of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) – the financial instrument that granted public subsidies to European fishing fleets for the period 2007 to 2014.

The organisation says the lack of transparency ‘is not accidental’. “The 84 licences that the Netherlands managed to obtain for the use of electricity at sea were granted between 2007 and 2014,” says Bloom’s chair, Claire Nouvian. “That is precisely the period for which Dutch authorities did not comply with the regulatory requirements of transparency.”

She said the context of the scandal was that traditional beam trawlers were going bankrupt because of high fuel consumption, when the solution to all their problems appeared in the form of electric fishing, which ‘triggered a gold rush’.

She said: “For industrial fishers, the fact that the use of electric current destroys the entire ecosystem and puts artisanal fishermen on the brink of extinction is the least of their worries. Not only have they obtained a number of licences well beyond the regulatory framework (30% exemptions instead of 5%), but everything indicates that their actions did not stop there.

“By re-classifying electric fishing as ‘innovative’, instead of ‘destructive’, the Dutch have also managed to obtain millions of euros of public aid.”

They say there is no risk to the enviroment, just like B.P. said off the Gulf of Mexico ! But what happened ? They are dumping 6700 tons of chemical - enriched drill waste that will adversely effect the sea bed area for miles around.

Meanwhile sadly we report that 3 x dolphins have washed up dead on our beaches we ask how many other fish have been killed, that no one sees laying dead on the seabed ?  we need to make protection orders to stop these actions in areas of outstanding natural beauty. AONB.

GIANT BLUE FIN TUNA

SCANDAL 2019

Rome, Italy - Spanish authorities announced the arrest of 76 people involved in a large illegal trade of bluefin tuna worth over €12 million per year between Malta and Spain, and with the engagement of other EU countries. 80,000 kg of illegally caught and marketed tuna were seized in the investigation, led under the coordination of EUROPOL. Irregularities found in the conservation of the fish could also cause food poisoning.

The international investigation has discovered a large network of fishing companies and distributors that includes also one of Europe’s biggest seafood farming companies, the Ricardo Fuentes and Sons Group, based in Spain.

The investigation provides crucial information ahead of the meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) taking place from 12 to 19 November in Croatia and where fishing nations and the EU will agree on new measures to manage the lucrative fishery of the east Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna.

Commenting on the case, Alessandro Buzzi, Bluefin Tuna Regional Manager with WWF, , said:

“It’s simply unacceptable that such a massive trade of illegal bluefin tuna involving European companies and worth millions of euros has managed to escape the controls of governments and most especially the EU institutions. Bluefin is one of the most economically valuable fish on the planet, therefore we need stronger rules and better monitoring to effectively protect the stock.

Fishing nations and the EU should take into account these unreported catches before moving forward with the planned increase of fishing quotas and any change is made to the recovery plan currently in place. We cannot let the bluefin stock crash once more.”

According to the investigation, Malta was one of the main sources of the illegal tuna that was sold and traded together with legal quantities. Here about 2.5 million kilos of undeclared tuna [1] are estimated to be sold for a total profit of €12.5 million per year. Italy was the starting point of another route: all the products came from illegal catches and were transported to Spain by road without any type of documentation and without any system of traceability and distributed to smaller businesses in the sector. French ports were used for transferring the illegal goods from Italy to Malta.

The investigation also reported several health and hygiene irregularities regarding the conservation of the fish after being caught, that could have caused food poisoning among consumers.

“All illegal seafood that reaches our plate has escaped the traceability and hygiene controls that are so important to protect our health. Tackling illegal fishing is important to protect our ocean as well as our own health.” concluded Buzzi.

[1] The 2,500,000 kilos of undeclared tuna estimated to be traded in Malta corresponds to nearly 10% of the total allowable catches for the stock for 2018.

KELP FORESTS


are the underwater equivalent to rain forest on land,they provide protection, they are  the breeding grounds and natural nursery areas for many millions of fish and shellfish

Right now a company MARINE BIOPOLYMERS  is intending to harvest up to 30.000 tons of kelp from from coastal locations on the west coast of Scotland ,destroying all habitats for marine life.  Is this right? ! We ask for your support to stop this happening. Our seas need your support .

WE REALLY DO NEED YOUR HELP !

Please support us now for a  world reduction in the size of the world fishing industry, the cutting of fins from dolphins and sharks for soup to the massive overfishing of the blue fin tuna fishing in the Mediterranean

and depleting our endangered world fish stocks.

This site is dedicated to protecting

our seas and life within them worldwide..

We are an ​Isle of Wight U.K. based marine conservation charity organisation campaigning worldwide and policing the seas under the United ​Nations Earth Charter of 1982 respecting the

" Laws of Nature "

We hold the position that the

law of ecology takes precedence over all other laws

We are specialists in subsea investigations, able to locate, document & recover, for all eventualities where there Is

  Loss of Life whether Human or Animal at sea.

SILENT   KILLERS     ON OUR BEACHES

 STOP THE CRIMES OF ELECTRIC PULSE FISHING !

DEAD LOBSTERS ,CRAB STAR FISH ,YOUNG AND BABY FISH ,PRAWNS AND BARNACLES  ALL ELECTROCUTED TO DEATH THEN LEFT ON THE SEABED


top right. 

LARGE POWERFUL BEAM TRAWLERS EQUIPPED TO ELECTRIFY AND KILL EVERY THING ON THE SEABED THEY TRAVEL OVER

OVER FISHING

The Planet cannot sustain this level of commercial fishing with over 4 million fishing vessels ,with China having a fishing fleet 10 times the size of Russia or America , Super trawlers with trawl nets big enough to contain 13 jumbo jets who have wiped out their own fish stock and are now sweeping the oceans clean elsewhere .  China is also buying up all the Deep Sea exploration licenses, where no one has yet been, unspoilt wilderness, searching for minerals....These areas have been untouched for millenia since the dawn of earths creation...

IT MUST BE STOPPED  !

SIMPLE  WAYS FOR INDIVIDUALS TO HELP STOP OCEAN DEPLETION


1.  Eat less fish.  Allow our fish stocks to recover. 80% of fish stocks are already depleted.

2.  Eat less meat. 20-30% of all fish caught goes to cattle feed for meat production.

3. Eat vegetarian or vegan.  Plant foods are abundant and healthy and contain many vitamins, protein and some even calcium!


THE   B.S.P.   WORLD NEWS

WE HAVE  FOUND MANY DEAD BIRDS ON OUR BEACHES  AND IN OUR HARBOURS RECENTLY

WE BELIEVE THE BIRDS HAVE EATEN PLASTICS.  ITS VERY SAD TO SEE THE RESULT OF PLASTICS AGE   !


NEW TO OUR AGENDA WILL BE AN AWARENESS FEATURE  TO PROTECT ALL FISH.

IT HAS  BEEN THOUGHT IN BYGONE YEARS THAT FISH DON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING OR FEEL PAIN.  THIS IS WRONG. FISH CAN NAVIGATE THE OCEANS  WITHOUT THE USE OF  G.P.S. REMEMBER THEIR PLACE OF BIRTH AND THEN NAVIGATE BACK YEARS LATER .  WE AIM TO PROTECT THEM WITH THE SAME LEVEL OF PROTECTION AS ANIMALS.  CURRENTLY THERE IS NO 

PROTECTION TO FISH AND HOW THEY ARE TREATED.  THIS PROTECTION IS VERY NECESSARY.



SOME SICKENING FACTS

1.  SALMON FARMERS    LEAVE   1.3 MILLION FISH TO CHOKE TO DEATH IN A TOXIC SOUP WITH NO OXYGEN TO BREATHE. THAT WAS IN ONE  FARM ONLY, WITH SIMILAR FINDINGS ELSEWHERE IN THE WORLD  .

2. SHARKS THE BARBARIC  TREATMENT OF SHARKS  AND DOLPHINS , CUTTING THEIR FINS OFF RETURNING THEIR MUTILATED BODIES TO THE SEA ALIVE UNABLE TO SWIM TO DIE SLOW PAINFUL DEATHS.

3. MANTA RAY THESE BEAUTIFUL  FISH ARE BEING KILLED TO CUT OUT THEIR  GILLS  FOR CHINESE MEDICATION  .

4. GIANT BLUEFIN TUNA   WILD FISH BEING TRAPPED IN CAGES  NOT FED FOR MONTHS ON END ,THEN BRUTALLY MURDERED.

5. THE WHALES AND DOLPHINS  IN THE FAROES ISLANDS & NORWAY BEING BUTCHERED IN RIVERS AND SEAS OF BLOOD .


PLEASE WE ASK YOU TO HELP US CALL FOR CHANGE ,SIGN OUR  NEW PETITION , DONATE OR TELL US IF YOU THINK WE SHOULD MOUNT DIRECT ACTION ?


Very disturbing news !       It is illegal to fish in Uk. or European waters    using electric pulse fishing  ( the electrocution of all living fish or shellfish )  yet the Dutch have commissioned a fleet of 87  super beam trawlers  equipped for electrocuting in our waters and seas.

Sadly and disgracefully the U.k. government have now followed suit and licensed 12  beam trawlers to fish Uk. waters by our fishing minister who doesnt know one end of a boat from the other, even allowing this despicable fishing practice inside our 12 mile limit, even licensed to fish in 3 MPA restricted areas .  Some of these trawlers funded by the Dutch owners but owned  by  Uk. registered companies.  This is a loophole in law ..  DEFRA state the trawlers are restricted to certain areas though, upon investigation the "restricted areas" turn out to be the whole Southern North Sea  !

this is crime in our oceans the electrocution of all living sea creatures 

These trawlers are big ships of 3000-5000 hp . &  fish very large areas; one boat average 3000kms round trip with electric beam fishing gear measuring 50mtrs wide  so that the towed seabed area is

  eg.     3000 kilometers  x  50mtrs wide fishing gear  =  150,000,000 sq.meters  coverage

The staggering statistics are  one boat , one month trip,    kills every single living creature in   150,000,000 sq.meters of ocean , times it by  99 trawlers currently fishing using electrification ,in one month    14,850,000 sq.kilometer of seabed is dead of all sea life   !

  killing  every living creature .

support us to take action to stop this crime !


BLUE SEAS PROTECTION  ARE PLEASED  TO  HAVE RECENTLY ENGAGED IN TALKS WITH  THE  CANADIAN  G.G.G.I.   GLOBAL  GHOST GEAR INITIATIVE AND HOPE TO WORK  ALONGSIDE THEM DOING THIS GREAT WORK



There is massive over production of animals for meats and over fishing of the oceans. 30% of caught fish goes to feed agricultural animals which are not natural fish eaters.

All these problems are  INDUSTRY  led by the greed of big companies for profits !

NOT consumer driven as widely believed.


Peak world fish catches were in 1996, since then catches have declined every year.  The Chinese have fished out their water completely, and are now subsidised by their government to exploit the rest of the world with a massive fishing fleet.  There are 4 million trawlers worldwide; our seas and oceans cannot sustain this level of fishing !


It is estimated the average U.K. human sea fish eating person consumes over 11,000 micro pieces of plastic per year from eating fish containing plastic


Southampton University study 2017 finds, all oysters in Solent waters Isle of Wight, have micro plastic within them averaging between 12 - 28 pieces of plastic per oyster in both filters and digestive tract.

Plymouth University  finds English channel most highly contaminated sea area in the world after sampling many world sites.


11% of U.K. Seals now have meso and micro plastics in their stomachs


Mark Carney head of the Bank of England warns !

"The worlds Oceans are facing complete market failure" Commercial fishing is triggering the extinction of species and compromising mankind's relationship with the sea with the use of electric fishing and remote netting devices. Scientists warn oceans will be wiped out by 2040-2050


The Food & Agriculture Organization and the United Nations environment program have estimated there is 640,000 tons of lost fishing nets continually ghost fishing in our Oceans , that is lost commercial fishing nets abandoned underwater still catching but with no means of being recovered .


Alarming News is that the AIS satellite vessel recognition system compulsory by International law is being turned off so that fishing vessels cannot be tracked when they are carrying out illegal fishing in protected areas.  There have been 20,000,000 instances of turn off .


Shocking truth!  Greed fishing by large foreign trawlers off the Somalian coast devastated the Somalian's local fishing, wiping out all stocks of fish there , so the Somalians retaliated the only way they knew how to, by boarding these trawlers taking power of them.  Hence  piracy was reborn. Now this illegal industry has grown massively, and become a breeding ground for extreme terrorism.

Who's trawlers, from what nations caused this initial crime ?


The magnificent Atlantic giant blue fin tuna , capable of speeds of 60m.p.h. with lifespan of 40years plus, grow to 800k.g. in weight, can dive to 1000mtrs deep.

I.C.C.A.T., the organisation charged with protecting against over fishing these magnificent creatures, in the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic are failing !

I.C.C.A.T. have now unbelievably raised the quota by a massive 30% in 2018 -2020, despite their own scientific reports and evidence declaring there is limited and unclear data on the declining stock sizes.  Some reports claim stocks are 97.5% depleted.

The Spanish fishermen welcome the news!  One Spanish fishing company owner made 300 million euro profit last year and continues to plunder the tuna to extinction, while the rest of the world has to sit and watch while the juvenile wild fish are being caught and starved of food for weeks on end whilst being transferred to the so called 100 plus tuna farms in the Mediterranean then fattened up for the Japanese sushi market

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION declare I.C.C.A.T. is failing to protect

and ask for your support to fight this unnecessary mass slaughter of the giant bluefin tuna

URGENT APPEAL

ABOVE  A  SCOTTISH LOCH  WHERE THE FISHING VESSEL

"NANCY GLEN "  SANK WITH SAD LOSS OF TWO FISHERMAN WHO ARE TRAPPED IN THE VESSEL IN 500 FT OF WATER

PRESS RELEASE 07/03/2018

LOSS OF LIFE AT SEA

CHARITY LAUNCH: AN APPEAL FOR SUPPORT

TO SUPPORT ANY PERSON AT SEA ,FISHERMEN, YACHTSMEN, SEAMEN.

BLUE SEAS PROTECTION, a specialist Marine Charity, announces a new platform to extend its services to those less fortunate when tragedy hits at sea .

Over many years as professional marine salvors, working alongside fishermen, and many friendships formed, we now want to help to instigate a rapid response service for loss of live at sea. We realise that fishermen work in one of the toughest most difficult and hazardous of industries. If something goes wrong it is often a matter of life or death.

The founders of Blue Seas Protection have been involved and represented families and next of kin where there has been sinking of fishing vessels and subsequent tragic loss of lives at sea. When these sad events happen there is no acknowledged independent response unit to make recovery of the bodies of lost fishermen for the families and next of kin. Currently families have to rely on the hope that authorities will somehow help, which can be a very lengthy time consuming process, which may or may not happen. This is not required at such times.

We refer to the sinking of the trawler Nancy Glen in Loch Fyne Scotland where sadly families had to wait months for the recovery of their lost ones. This happened just meters from the shore in plain view of the whole community. We are calling for a professional Marine Rapid Response Unit and offer to address this horrendous lack of provision at the most devastating of times.

We appeal now for Harbour Authorities, Fishing Industry companies, fish merchants, fish processors, fishing boat owners, fishermen and families to support this provision of a new service provided by our charity.

If you feel you can help please  use the donate button and leave your details and why you wish to support the fishing community and we will publish your comments: blueseasprotection.com

WE NEED TO ACT NOW!

OUR OCEANS ARE BEING DEPLETED OF FISH !*

HELP US

We have been working on

1. Lost and Abandoned fishing net retrieval programme South coast UK.

Nets that continue to fish and catch hundreds of thousands of fish for many years, until all that remains is an underwater carpet of skeletons and bone, working with the aims of the GGGI.


2. Lobbying of Authority ,DEFRA,& Governments Worldwide for biodegradable and/or trackable nets.


3. "Greed fishing" Industry Highlighting MITSUBISHI amongst others as the parent company behind the wilful destruction of the GIANT BLUE FIN TUNA in order to raise its commercial value. BLUE FIN TUNA has been stockpiled in their massive freezers with now over 15years supply and still catching the few left until its extinction .


We have conducted an undercover investigation involving the plight of the the Mediterranean  Giant bluefin tuna. 

The scandal is that wild tuna are caught in their spawning grounds and transferred live to giant holding net cages so-called fish farms but they are not farms.  Termed as farms they are outside of quota legislation so our world stocks are being savagely destroyed because of the greed of a few.  97.5% of bluefin tuna have gone.

Latest staggering figures s revealed over 40 million tons of fish have been caught as a food for  fish farms  ,with a yield ratio of 1-15 so every 15 kg of caught fish fed to farmed fish 1kg of farm fish is produced. 


4. The reality of "sustainable fishing" being promoted.

Its not a reality it just sounds good. We are currently challenging a major uk supermarket chain on this matter, working with TESCO & ASDA super stores .


5. Shellfish industry demise.

The marketing of pregnant and juvenile shell fish


6. The Plastic Pollution Crisis

We are fighting this issue on land, sea and inland waterways, using our registered design equipment and implementing new and innovative ways to collect and process recyclable materials


*Mark Carney, Head of Bank of England, warns of "market failures" from overfishing in worlds oceans

IT HAS NOW BEEN REPORTED THAT CHINA HAVE DEPLETED THEIR SOUTH CHINA SEAS OF COMMERCIAL FISH STOCKS COMPLETELY.

all donations gratefully received .


The time to act is now we need ​YOUR SUPPORT !

There are many issues that need to be addressed to protect the oceans for future generations.  Did you know the latest statistics are showing that 80% of the worlds commercial fish stocks are depleted?

27% of caught fish go to agricultural animal feed. Animals which don't eat fish. There are terrible irresponsible acts being committed daily. We aim to prevent these actions by any available means! We are not afraid to take on and challenge such crimes in our oceans.  We will endeavor to rid the seas of lost and abandoned fishing nets which are "ghost fishing" the seas, and plastics which are polluting and reducing fish stocks and killing marine life on a vast scale.

We will petition local, national and International governments with your help for commercial nets to be fitted with tracking devices and/or be made of biodegradable material.

UPDATE: SINCE JANUARY 2018 THE MMO ARE NOW ENCOURAGING FISHERMEN TO HAVE THEIR NETS TAGGED. AT THE MOMENT THIS IS A VOLUNTARY SCHEME.  WE BELIEVE THIS NEEDS TO GO FURTHER AND WILL CONTINUE TO CAMPAIGN FOR NETS TO BE MADE TRACKABLE AT POINT OF MANUFACTURE. 

PREVENT THE ACT Of TRAWLERS SWITCHING OFF THEIR SHIP'S TRACKING DEVICES WHEN FISHING ILLEGALLY

We will act as we think fit in the eyes of "the Creator"  we reserve the right to take

direct action at sea !

as a last resort against anyone who commits  crimes at sea .

Coastal lost nets recovery programme

"GHOSTFISHING" IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM.  THE NORWEGIAN GOVERNMENT DID A 400KM TRAWL OF THEIR COASTLINE AND RECOVERED 320KM OF NET WHICH HAD BEEN LOST OR ABANDONED AND WAS STILL CATCHING MARINE LIFE BENEATH THE SEA.  These nets have been recovered , saving " hundred of thousands " of marine species, birds fish and shellfish from dying suffering needlessly .

We need your help please report any information on any abandoned lost fishing nets , so we can take action to recover them without delay

OPERATION SEA SWEEP 2018

starting now

seabed survey using state of the art sonar 3d mapping techniques to identify plastic build up in relation to tidal effects around the ISLE OF WIGHT, plastic waste recovery using our own developed MANTA RAY system, ghost net recovery using ROV & gas diving techniques in deeper waters off the island .
