The EU fishing fleets fuelling the global shark trade
This report uncovers the huge scale of the global squid fishing industry, which has grown over 10-fold since 1950 and is now jeopardising marine ecosystems around the world.
English fishermen, together with local fishing businesses, Greenpeace UK, Angling Trust and New Economics Foundation are calling on the UK government to take immediate and urgent action to protect coastal livelihoods and the health of our oceans.

This report documents Greenpeace's investigation of destructive fishing practices within an area which is supposed to be legally protected. Greenpeace investigators also discovered widespread illegal fishing activity in the protected area.
New Greenpeace analysis has found that only five of the UK’s 73 offshore protected areas ‘may be’ progressing towards conservation targets. Just two offshore protected areas have long-term site condition monitoring available - a damning reflection on the government’s failure to properly protect the UK’s waters.
