Stop the mass slaughter of dolphins by the fishing industry in EU waters

Thousands of short-beaked common dolphins are being killed by fishing vessels targeting pelagic fish species in EU waters. This barbaric practice is referred to as ‘bycatch’ by the fishing industry.

We are calling on Karmenu Vella, the EU Commissioner for Environment Maritime Affairs & Fisheries, to take urgent action to end this cruel and unnecessary mass slaughter of these highly intelligent and much-loved animals.
