Un ours blanc sur la banquise en Arctique

The news has made little noise

And yet it is a real relief for all advocates of the preservation of the marine ecosystems. Of which we are part, passionate divers of the seas and oceans, even arctic ocean.

A moratorium was voted on November 30 on industrial fishing in the central Arctic.

It had been several months since Tesco and McDonald’s. Giants of the food industry had already accepted a moratorium on the extension of the cod fishery in this region of the globe. Large consumers of fish sticks in particular. They have thus privileged a choice associating their brand image with a major environmental concern.

I recall vividly the news about Tesco and McDonald’s in the Arctic.

Both giants made a significant decision. They agreed to halt the extension of the cod fishery in the region. This move was crucial for the Arctic ecosystem. As a consumer, I admired their commitment to environmental conservation. Their choice reflected a growing awareness of Arctic conservation issues. It’s inspiring to see companies prioritize sustainability over profit. This decision impacted consumers like me. I became more conscious of the environmental impact of my choices. The Arctic’s fragile ecosystem depends on such initiatives. It’s a reminder of our responsibility to protect the planet’s vital regions. I felt a sense of pride knowing that companies are taking steps to preserve the Arctic. Their actions set an example for other industries to follow. As individuals, we can also contribute to Arctic conservation efforts. Together, we can safeguard this unique environment for future generations.


After long years of negotiations and a major awareness of the urgency of preserving the Arctic. And its incredible wealth of biodiversity, the defenders of this wonderful region are relieved.

In fact, while the previous summers saw the ice cap shrinking. Giving trawlers the opportunity to throw their nets into these previously ice-protected areas. The urgency was to keep intact this sanctuary hosting hundreds of species of fish.

I have always been fascinated by the Arctic. Its vastness and beauty captivate me. Exploring the Arctic’s icy landscapes is a dream of mine. I yearn to witness its pristine wilderness firsthand. The Arctic’s fragile ecosystem is under threat. Climate change is rapidly altering its ice cover. I feel a sense of urgency to protect this unique sanctuary. Its waters teem with diverse marine life. Preserving the Arctic’s biodiversity is crucial. Trawlers encroaching into once-ice-covered areas pose a threat. I advocate for sustainable fishing practices in the Arctic. We must ensure the survival of species that call it home. My passion for the Arctic drives me to take action. I support initiatives aimed at conservation and preservation. The Arctic holds a special place in my heart. Its beauty and importance inspire me to act. I am committed to protecting this fragile region for future generations.

Voted by all countries bordering the Arctic

United States, Canada, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Norway, Russia. And other industrial fishing nations (European Union, Iceland, but also China, Japan and South Korea ). This moratorium provides for a protected area of ​​fishing with a radius of 200 km from the North pole.

Although it is sad to note that it took more than 5 years to reach the decision not to empty this incredible global marine species reserve. We must be happy with this excellent news, which has almost gone unnoticed.

Nevertheless, let us hope on the one hand that this moratorium. Planned for 16 years, will be able to perpetuate itself in a definitive ban on industrial fishing in the Arctic. On the other hand. It could inspire Greenpeace (very active in this action) and the other actors behind this moratorium to renew the initiative in other parts of the world. To the delight of nature.

Because divers from all over the world are sensitive to the beauty and fragility of this wonderful marine life. That welcomes us for our greatest pleasure.
