Big Wave proud to be supporting Shark Trust’s No Limits? campaign

Posted on: March 23rd, 2016

Big Wave have teamed up with the Shark Trust to help promote their important No Limits? shark campaign. We had the pleasure of spending 48 hours in the water with over 200 blue sharks last summer whilst filming for ITV’s upcoming show ‘Britain’s Sharks’. But currently, there are no fishing limits on these beautiful oceanic wanderers.

Paul Cox, Managing Director of the Shark Trust, says, “No limits on sharks makes no sense. It’s estimated that 10 to 20 million Blue Sharks are caught each year. Is this sustainable? Probably not but without catch limits we can’t even begin to manage for a sustainable future for these beautiful and vital sharks.”

The top four European shark fishing nations are Spain, Portugal, France and the UK who, between them, account for 95% of the recorded landings in the EU.

Big Wave are proud to be supporting the Shark Trust @SharkTrustUK to raise awareness on over-fishing of sharks. Please help Big Wave support the @SharkTrustUK #NoLimits campaign by pledging your support here:
