Stop Overfishing in the Baltic NOW - Apply the Rules!

Mundus MarisI just created a new petition and I hope you can sign -- it's called: Stop overfishing in the Baltic NOW - Apply the rules!

This issue is very important to me - and I think for the BUP network -, and I could use your help to influence the long-term management plan for the Baltic Sea currently under discussion between the European institutions. It should achieve high sustainable yields.

Read more about it and sign the petition.

Campaigns like this always start small, but they grow when people like us get involved -- please take a second right now to help out by signing and passing it on. I believe it fits very well with the concerns of the SD Centre of Uppsala University and would benefit greatly from spreading through your network with some encouragement. Would be great, if lots of staff and students were signing to make their concerns visible.

Thanks so much, together we can make it happen,
