Ministers Nash and Sage: I demand that the NZ Govt bans bottom trawling on seamounts and similar deep sea features, and stop issuing permits for bottom trawling in international waters.
Our oceans are being plundered for profit by the fishing industry. Together we can stop this destruction, and safeguard our precious oceans for all.
We’re calling for the Government to ban bottom trawling on seamounts - underwater mountains that are rich hotspots of biodiversity.
These are the ‘kauri forests of our ocean’ and it’s up to us to protect them.
