Monty Halls backs Celtic Seas protection
Monty Halls, BBC2’s Fisherman’s Apprentice, has supported the launch of the Celtic Seas Partnership, a pioneering four year international project to protect the ‘Celtic Seas’ which extend from the British Isles and Ireland to northern France.
The aim of the project, led by WWF, is to bring about sustainable management of the Celtic Seas, allowing their exceptional biodiversity and natural habitats to recover.
The Celtic Seas are home to a spectacular array of wildlife and people from across Europe are dependent upon them for their livelihoods. The region has long been a busy shipping area with important fisheries, aquaculture and an active and varied tourist industry. But the future of this region is under threat from issues such as over-exploitation and pollution.
Monty Halls said: “I’m a passionate believer in what the project is advocating; that we need to look after our seas and involve those whose livelihoods depend on it in their management. WWF’s vision for a sustainable future for the Celtic Seas could be used as a template for other places around the world.”
The project is bringing together sea-users, industry, governments and the scientific community to find ways of working together that will achieve healthy and sustainable seas.
Celtic Seas Partnership builds on the success of PISCES, another WWF led project that came to an end in 2012. PISCES brought together key marine stakeholders to look at how they could protect the dynamic Celtic Sea ecosystem.
