Dear Jon,

Today Mercy For Animals released never-before-seen footage of the commercial driftnet fishing industry—otherwise known as the death net industry. The horrifying footage, taken by Mercy For Animals, Turtle Island Restoration Network, SeaLegacy, and Sharkwater, shows vulnerable species—like dolphins, sea lions, and seabirds—killed by the driftnets and workers viciously mutilating and cutting apart live stingrays and sharks. Mercy For Animals has teamed up with these organizations to ban cruel death nets once and for all. Driftnets, so indiscriminately lethal they are called “walls of death,” are giant nets dumped into the ocean by the commercial fishing industry. The industry is notorious for the staggering number of sea animals—callously referred to as bycatch—who are caught, killed, and thrown away like garbage each time one of these death nets is pulled back onto the ship. The commercial driftnet fishing industry is responsible for egregious animal cruelty and devastating depletion of ocean habitats. Over three-quarters of marine animals killed by driftnets are bycatch, and this loss of life is a massive threat to ocean habitats.We can’t allow this horrific devastation to continue.
 
 
 
Please share the video with friends to help raise awareness of this issue. Please don’t support this needlessly cruel industry by eating fish. Instead, find healthy and delicious alternatives right here.Fish are every bit as capable of experiencing pain and suffering as our beloved dogs and cats, and they deserve protection from egregious cruelty. Together we are creating a more compassionate world for animals.
