You helped us to stop the super trawler, now we need your help to stop the pair trawler.
The Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) has received an application to allow Pair Trawling, a reincarnation of the Super Trawler, into our Small Pelagic Fishery (SPF) and we only have a few days to stop it. The SPF spans waters from Perth to Queensland; it is a vast area where many of our threatened marine species are found.
HSI has submitted our opposition to AFMA but we need your help so we can put a stop to the pair trawler coming to Australia. Pair trawling is banned in many countries, including the United Kingdom, due to the destruction it causes to marine ecosystems and the species that call our oceans home. More marine mammals, including protected dolphins and seals, are killed in pair trawlers than any other fishing method.
Please use our form below to email AFMA and ask them to refuse the pair trawler, and keep our oceans safe. Copies of your emails will also be sent to the ministers for fisheries and environment.
The deadline for emails to AFMA has now closed. Click here to see other actions you can take.
