Our 'No Limits' sharks need urgent help. They're being fished at an alarming and unsustainable rate. We're campaigning for science based catch limits to be set immediately. Before it's too late. Will you join us?

We launched our No Limits? campaign in 2014. In response to the crisis posed by unlimited and escalating shark fishing.

Many shark species have no catch limits, so can be fished infinitely. Landings have soared over the past decade, placing huge pressure on shark populations. In most need are our No Limits? sharks; Blue Sharks, Shortfin Mako, Tope, smoothhounds and catsharks. Together these sharks account for over 97% of reported Atlantic shark landings. 

In 2016 we made progress with the Blue Shark. Fishing nations at the annual meeting of the ICCAT (International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas) took a small, yet unprecedented, step toward establishing catch limits in the North Atlantic.

This year we're taking advantage of an opportunity to help Shortfin Mako's in the Atlantic. Shortfin Mako's are exceptionally vulnerable, so we're pulling out all the stops. It’s make or break for these sharks. Let’s do all we can to protect them.
