REDUCE DISPOSABLE PLASTIC AND CHOOSE TO PROTECT THE PLANET, ALL TOGETHER YOU CAN!

Sea pollution and tons of waste left on the beaches. What can we do to reverse this and protect the environment? Pescaria has an idea in mind! Follow us.


IS THERE MORE FISH OR PLASTIC IN THE SEA?

Sea pollution is a huge danger for the entire planet and a high risk that could lead to a drastic decrease in fish production. In 2050, there will be more plastic than fish at sea. The staggering data are those of the study "The new plastics economy - Rethinking the future of plastics", a 2016 report published by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

The Mariana Trench, in the Pacific Ocean, is one of the most inaccessible points in the world, yet plastic and noise pollution have also arrived there (at 11 thousand meters deep), another danger for our marine fauna. During one of the most recent research, the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has built and left special microphones, hydrophones, on the bottom of the pit for three weeks. What these microphones have recorded is truly incredible.

WHAT IS IN THE ITALIAN SEA?

620 waste every 100 meters of beach: the Legambiente Beach Litter 2018 survey was carried out on the occasion of Spiagge e Fondali Puliti, an initiative that Pescaria also joined by collecting funds and realizing the dream of cleaning a part of the seabed on the coast of Polignano.

What can we do to save the sea?
Today, reducing the use of disposable plastic must be one of our main objectives. On May 28, 2018, the European Union introduced new rules against disposable products, by banning, among others, straws, balloon poles and cotton swabs.
This is happening: fishing plastic

"Suchitwa Sagaram" or Clean Sea is the initiative promoted by the Minister of Fisheries of Kerala, along the southern coast of India. To cope with the emergency of marine water pollution (in a country where fishing is the main livelihood), fishermen began to collect and bring plastic waste to shore, safeguarding the ecosystem that supports their same job.

So far, Indian fishermen have removed 10 tons of plastic bags and bottles, along with 15 tons of abandoned nets and ropes.

DO WE REALLY NEED ALL THIS PLASTIC?

Straight answer: no. This is why Pescaria has decided to set a big, huge but not impossible goal: to completely eliminate the use of plastic between now and six months.

For us at Pescaria, cooking is much more than a profession. It's a mission, it's our role in society. We love the sea, and today our duty is to protect it.

We can give the sea an opportunity, and we can still do something to save it.

With Pescaria we have something revolutionary in mind and we want to tell you about it, step by step. Would you like to clean the sea with us?
