We can help our sea creatures by reducing our environmental impact at home. This could include using less water and electricity, planting trees or your own food at home, composting and recycling, or going for a bike ride instead of a ride in the car.

We all have to do our part to stop over fishing, so all marine life can replenish. If you want to go fishing, always make sure to only catch what you need, don’t take fish that are too small or too young, and use the right bait, just check the rules for each fish in your area.
