Painted Fish

Here, after many failed attempts is the fish I drew for the Paintafish campaign!


The Paint a Fish campaign aims to engage and educate the younger generations in the protection of fish stocks. People (specially children and young people) from countries in the European Union and beyond are encouraged to paint a fish. All fish will be uploaded on this web site to create a colourful fish stock that will call on EU leaders to refill our seas by restoring fish stocks to their maximum sustainable yield.

The campaign is timed with the final stages of the reform of Common Fisheries Policy which is a once in 10 year opportunity to lay the foundations of sustainable fisheries in Europe.

Another key goal of the campaign is to educate younger generations in sustainable fisheries.

A terrific fish, Juliet ... far more 'fish-like' than mine!

Cute! If I tried to paint a fish, I am afraid it would be completely unrecognizable :)

What a surprising post...and what a great idea sustainable fisheries, it makes me think about a lot of matters... including that terrible killing of whales Norway and Japan seem never to be persuaded to stop.
