Conservation Matters: A Question of Fish(ing)

I hope you like my fish!

I 'painted' it on the WWF site and sent it on via that site to my MEPS, who have been involved in the over-fishing debate. I hope it made them smile! You can see the fish that have been animated in this short clip here.

I am glad to report that The European Parliament has just voted in favour of rescuing our fish stocks. This may not go far enough, but it is a move in the right direction. 

The Paint a Fish campaign will continue in the following months leading up to the next step of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, currently scheduled to take place in June 2013.

You can visit to learn more, see all the fish in the ‘virtual fish stock’ and continue to support the campaign.

The fish need all the help they can get!
