One third of the world’s fresh water fish population is in catastrophic decline, and in danger of extinction. The situation is threatening the health, food security and livelihood of 200 million of people around the world.

Eighty freshwater species have been declared extinct with sixteen species going extinct in 2020. Freshwater fish not only support the livelihood of people around the world, but they are also important for the health of our planet.

We wonder if governments around the world realize that the extinction of animals is a direct result of major corporations polluting waters and overfishing, as opposed to small scale fishers.
