Fish bombing is illegal in many countries around the world, however laws regarding this fishing practice are often not fully implemented, and difficult to enforce in remote areas. The sound from fish bombs is trapped underwater, making it very difficult to detect from the surface. If a fishermen is about to caught they can quickly discard any evidence of fish bombing overboard, and therefore convictions are very rare. The risk of fines or imprisonment is so low that the blast fishermen are more than willing to continue.

Stop Fish Bombing! has the will, the technology and is building the support to stop this harmful method of fishing. Thank you for your support fighting for sharks, healthy reefs and a healthy ocean.
