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.

LOOKING OUT  FOR YOU,

WARNING  OF HAZARDS AHEAD

OVERFISHING !


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 .

IT MUST BE STOPPED  !

SIMPLE  WAYS 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

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

WE BELEIVE 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 . WELL THERE VERY WRONG , FISH CAN NAVIGATE THE OCEANS  WITHOUT THE USE OF  G.P.S. REMEMBER THERE PLACE OF BIRTH AND THEN NAVIGATE BACK TO THEM YEARS LATER .  WE AIM TO PROTECT THEM WITH THE SAME LEVEL OF PROTECTION AS ANIMALS CURRENTLY THERE IS NO 

PROTECTION TO FISH AND HOW THERE TREATED  THIS PROTECTION IS VERY NECESSARY  IN LIGHT OF OUR FINDINGS .



SOME SICKENING FACTS

1.  SALMON FARMERS    LEAVE     1.3  MILLION ,   YES THATS RIGHT 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 ELSE WHERE 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  BEING KILLED TO CUT OUT THEIR  GILLS  FOR CHINESE MEDICATION  .

4. GIANT BLUE FINN 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

The Isle of Wight has many rare and varied species of flora and fauna and is currently being examined with a view to being designated a recognised "biosphere" by UNESCO (see www.wightaonb.org.ukuk for more details). There are 600 Biospheres globally but only 6 in the UK.  We want to make Sandown Bay a Marine Conservation Zone within this Biosphere and we hope that the rare Raja Undulata (undulate ray) within the waters of the Bay will help this Cause.

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 .
