  • This June, in celebration of World Oceans Month, our community came together in a big way. On June 8th we joined Too Big to Ignore’s international panel series highlighting small-scale fisheries around the world. And on June 15, we stormed the Twitter gates in a blitz campaign to tell our decision-makers that #FishermenAreEssential and to #HelpUsHelpYou provide seafood to local and regional communities in need.

  • And just like that, it’s June. Over the last three months, the Revol-Ocean has come together in full force! Together, we delivered recommendations from fishing communities across the nation for Congress’ next stimulus package, collaborated with the Local Catch Network to learn what our community of fish harvesters and seafood businesses wanted the federal government to do to support them in the age of COVID-19, and generated a sign-on letter to lift up their recommendations. These efforts culminated in a virtual SOS message that was sent to Congress and federal agencies. 

  • We need hope during these times. We need community. And we need a pandemic of positive change. Changing how we feed ourselves is a good place to focus because the COVID-19 pandemic has surfaced the long standing cracks in a flawed food system. For over 25 years, we have made it our mission to advocate for changes that can build a better world by supporting community-based fishermen and visualizing a different seafood system. To do that, we must demand the changes that can get us there. To do that, we must demand change. We have to act.
