Globally, fisheries have been severely exploited with an estimated 90% of all fisheries depleted. Industrial fishing has destroyed most coastal fisheries due to the relative ease of access.
Importantly, toothfish contribute nothing to global food security. Instead, they are served as a luxury dish in 5-star hotels around the world. This means that this fishery does nothing to reduce global fishing pressures.
Along with krill fishing, the Bob Brown Foundation is calling for a complete end to toothfish fishing. We will aim for the establishment of a permanent no take zone in the Antarctic and Sub Antarctic.
