    Despite an increased awareness of overfishing, the majority of people still know very little about the scale of the destruction being wrought on the oceans. This film presents an unquestionable case for why overfishing needs to end and shows that there is still an opportunity for change. Through reform of the EU‘s Common Fisheries Policy, fisheries ministers and members of the European Parliament can end overfishing. But only if you pressure them. Video made as part of the Ocean2012 initiative. For more information, please see http://ocean2012.eu/

          Help us to end the blind spend. Read on or visit ocean2012.eu/action. On February 6, 2013 the European Parliament voted overwhelming in favour of a far-reaching reform of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy. However, the reform is not fully over; how public funds are invested, the future European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF), will play a critical role in realising the ambition of the Parliament. On October 23, members of the European Parliament must end the blind spend by voting: 1. For fisheries subsidies that end overfishing; 2. For greater investment in data collection & control and enforcement by; and 3. Against aid for the construction of new vessels. What you can do: - Contact your MEP.

            A work-in-progress promo clip for the Planet Korda Pictures documentary film "Salt in their Blood", directed by Jeremiah Cullinane, produced by Bartolomeo Dibenedetto. The "Eblana" and the "Nimrod" are the last two trawlers operating out of the Irish fishing port of Howth, near Dublin. Not long ago, there were 40 trawlers working from Howth. Soon the "Nimrod" will be scrapped as well. How do these men of the sea cope when the sea is no longer part of their lives?
