Karmenu Vella. He is the European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries

Dear Karmenu Vella,

Overfishing globally is destroying our ecosystem. I would like you to review the New Common Fisheries policy to see if everything is being done to help the global ecosystem to be sustainable. Your support may give our oceans a fighting chance of regrowing.

I and many others who want to stop overfishing strongly disagree with the amount of fish pulled out of the oceans each year.Up to about 77.9 billion fish. Some of the reasons why I am so passionate to stop overfishing is because dredging is causing damage to the ecosystem, most fish species are becoming critically endangered and mass fishing is polluting the ocean. You need to review and change the New Common Fisheries policy because if we keep going we will have no fish left in the ocean by 2050 from pollution and continual fishing without any policies stopping them.

Your action will change things because a new policy to stop overfishing will cause a drop in overfishing numbers. The effect of the action will give the fish and oceans a chance to regrow and continue to regrow not drop.

You should act because you have the responsibility and are able to take the action needed to stop the problem. If something doesn’t happen soon there would be no fish in the ocean and we will be losing a vital food group. You are in the best position to act and make a difference because you are the commissioner of fisheries. It is your responsibility to act because you love the oceans like I do, and I want to keep this vital food source available for future generations. I believe that you can make a difference. But will you.

Yours sincerely,
Kellan Rayner

How this will help

Requesting this action is important because otherwise fish will become extinct and action will help because it will drop the percentage of people who overfish. 

You are in the position to act...

Requesting this action is important because otherwise fish will become extinct and action will help because it will drop the percentage of people who overfish. 

You are in the position to act because you are the commissioner of Fisheries for the EU. This position oversees protection of our environment while maintaining EU competitiveness.

Names on a petition will influence karmenu because it
will give him an idea. It will give him an idea of the amount of people who want to change the way fishing is now and put pressure on him to follow through.
