|WHO WE ARE
We are recreational and sports fishermen who have chosen this activity because we consider it sustainable. In fact, we are the only fishers, thanks to seeing the fish, can decide whether to try the catch or give up. We can evaluate if the size is right and usually our preys have a size at least twice than what is imposed by the law. We know the reproductive period of each species and we can avoid catching fish during periods when they are most vulnerable. We believe we practice sustainable fishing but above all we care about the health of the sea and its inhabitants. Tnis is why we have designed PLASTIC FREE SPEARFISHING.
Waste and plastic collection initiatives are not an absolute novelty, because there are also other organizations carrying them out, even if in different contexts, THE NOVELTY is represented by "PLASTIC FREE FISHING" which is the first initiative that arises spontaneously from the sensitivity of freediving fishers.
The main objective is undoubtedly to improve the health of the seabed and coastal areas, but also to demonstrate that the freediving fisher is not someone who only thinks of catching fish. In fact he is one of the first to care about the health of the environment where he dives.
The PLASTIC FREE SPEARFISHING organization has not set itself objectives for profit, or personal interests - by reading the other pages of this site you can understand much more.
SUMMARY OF THE MAIN OBJECTIVES
A) SEA HEALTH STATUS
B) BUILD ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS OF SPEARFISHERS AND NOT
C) TRANSPARENCY OF GOALS AND ABSENCE OF PROFIT PURPOSES
You can also contribute individually at any time and not necessarily with a group initiative.
1) Every time you dive, take home some of the waste you find on the seabed.
2) When possible, partecipate in group initiatives to clean the seabed or coastal shores.
3) Build awareness in everyone you know to respect the environment. If we all pick up something instead of throwing it away, within a few years the world will be better.
