Det er dyrt at bryde fiskelovene
Mål 14: Bevare og bæredygtigt udnytte oceaner, have og marineressourcer til en bæredygtig udvikling.
Af John Attah
What an informative day it was at Lemvig Fishing Museum and harbour learning about the fishing history of the Lemvig area.
There was an exciting discussion on conservatory and sustainable use of oceans, sea and marine resources for sustainable development. This discussion made me know why sustainability is not only important but key in achieving food security for the world.
If Nigeria, my home country, and other developing nations hope to have food for generations yet unborn, then we must act as the Danish fisher folks who respect the international and European fishing laws by practising sustainable fishing methods such as getting fish quotas and using the required standard net size for fishing. They do this, not because they are the most law abiding citizens, but because they understand how necessary it is to benefit economically and otherwise from our sea and oceans without destroying or causing an imbalance in our ecosystems.
Laws might be made to be broken but in this case it means breaking our future, which is expensive.
