TRANSFORMED COASTAL TRAWLING BY 2030

We want to see bottom trawling urgently tackled by all coastal nations, with evidence of a globally reduced footprint by 2030. To help achieve this goal, we’re calling for States, in consultation with fishworker organisations and other stakeholders, to:

Establish, expand and strengthen national inshore exclusion zones (IEZs) for small-scale fishers in which bottom trawling is prohibited.

Prohibit bottom trawling in all marine protected areas (outside IEZs) to ensure vulnerable habitats and ecosystems are effectively protected and recovered.

End subsidised bottom trawling and allocate financial and technical resources to support a fair transition for fleets.

Prohibit the expansion of bottom trawling to new, untrawled areas, unless and until it can be proven that there are no significant adverse impacts.

THE 2030 TARGET
