There is a gaining grounds movement against super trawlers that are raping our fisheries.

I have signed but I'm slightly concerned about question 10 in their FAQ section.

Well spill the Beans!
10. Do you think that dolphins are more important, from a welfare perspective, than fish?

No, we don’t. We recognise that, even ignoring the issue of bycatch, the global fishing industry catches between 1 and 3 trillion fish every year. Each one of these is a sentient animal whose welfare is compromised and whose life is ultimately ended because of humans’ desire to eat fish.

However, this is a connected but separate issue to cetaceans being killed as bycatch. Our focus on dolphins, porpoises and whales doesn’t diminish the welfare issues affecting other species; it is simply where we, as the World Cetacean Alliance, direct our efforts.

There you go Gary.

I signed it a while ago, wasn't easy to find out where to sign though.
I was sure I signed it a while ago too, but it's just let me sign it again anyway! Shame a lot of these worthwhile petitions are on Change.org. They are swines for pestering folk with emails, even when you ask them not to.

The main reason I never sign petitions. Apart from the fact that not a single one has ever changed anything.

I have signed, about time the UK Government banned all this.
