Diederik Jeangout and Michael Dilissen of How To Save The Bluefin
The Black Fish is a conservation organisation focused on investigation and grassroots campaigning in an effort to create better understanding and protection for Europe's threatened marine habitat and species. The organisation booked a number of successes in recent months in campaigning for marine mammals in captivity. The organisation's focus is now switching towards damaging industrial fishing activity and European whaling.
"It is important that the bluefin tuna gets better protection. The fact that a fish this threatened is still sold in cities across Europe asks for action. We welcome the people from How To Save The Bluefin to help make this happen. This move is evidence of the growing movement of people that wish to protect our seas from the dangers of overfishing" according to Wietse van der Werf, spokesperson for The Black Fish.
The Black Fish will formally announce its upcoming bluefin tuna campaign later this year.
