A box of sea

Environmental sustainability, Poverty and social exclusion

The project “A Box of Sea” brings together low impact fishermen and citizens who want to take action against overfishing. The aims of this coalition are to create a fairer market which protects the marine environment, rewards those who fish in more moderate ways, supports small fishing communities and provides better information to consumers regarding the seafood that ends up on their plates. Supporters receive fish caught daily by low impact fishermen to their doorstep. Those who receive the boxes help to test out different tools and logistic details in order to establish a distribution system that will be operated exclusively by the fishermen in the future.
