New Investigation: Mediterranean Fishing – Greece, 2020
With a focus on gilt-head sea bream and European sea bass, Greece is known worldwide for its extensive aquaculture and commercial fishing industries. In 2019 Greece supplied 59% of the sea bream and sea bass sold in the European Union and 22% sold worldwide, according to the Federation of Greek Mariculture’s 2020 report.
“Fish are invisible. Their suffering cannot be heard, their slaughter is silent. We need to realise the magnitude of fish that we are taking from the sea everyday, of the damage to our ecosystems, of the unsustainability of fish farming, of the chain of production that affects both nature and humans so badly. We need to finally connect with their suffering.” — Selene Magnolia, animal photojournalist
