What does #LifeBelowWater mean as a goal?

We have a couple of targets that we are trying to hit by 2030, the world’s major deadline. Meaning, if we hit them, we achieve the overall goal.

1.) Reduce marine pollution.

By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.

2.) End overfishing and illegal fishing practices.

By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time feasible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological characteristics.

3.) Equal opportunities for small-scale fishers.

Provide access for small-scale artisanal fishers to marine resources and markets.
