We are determined to reconcile fisheries with conservation, at all scales.
We began by collaborating with small-scale fishers who collect wild seahorses by hand. We then realized that the biggest threat to seahorses comes from bottom trawling. This indiscriminate gear catches thousands of species and destroys marine habitats, while also posing huge social and economic problems. We are now producing the research and making the connections that will help end bottom trawling, in favour of selective fisheries.
