World Forum of Fish Harvesters and Fishworkers (WFF)
World Forum of Fish Harvesters and Fishworkers (WFF) was established to uphold human rights and social justice for fishermen. In some parts of the world, they are still beaten and killed for questioning the give-away of fishing quotas to foreign fleets, or for opposing the establishment of fish farms that destroy native fisheries, or for protesting ITQ schemes that privatize fisheries. Even in nations where government and corporate actions are more subtle, the need to organize across national boundaries is necessary to protect against pollution, habitat destruction and destructive fishing practices.
