Promotion of Cetacean-Safe Fishing Interactions

Different methods of fishing pose different levels of threat of accidental entanglement or damage to cetaceans. These occurrences not only cause harm to the animals but can be the cause of damage to fishing gear as well. It is known that cetaceans and fishermen have been interacting for years sometimes with damage to the animals, sometimes with damage to the fishing equipment or catch and in some commendable cases with damage to neither or even benefit to one or both parties.

At CCARO we would like to determine, in consultation with the relevant stakeholders, the types of interactions which occur and to promote fishing methods which result in less harm to cetaceans and to fishing gear.

Our Plan

We are the only species able to change the natural world and able to understand what we've done, so we must be the stewards of the world. Otherwise, the world as we know it won't be here.
