Artisanal fishing is more profitable and sustainable than industrial fishing.

A scientific study initiated by the Bloom association confirms that industrial fishing is a direct threat to our planet and our economy. The "Changer de cap" report reminds us of this with force and rigor: it creates fewer jobs and generates less wealth than artisanal fishing, while monopolizing public subsidies and natural resources common to all mankind.

The report is the result of the work of a multi-disciplinary, partnership-based research group on the social-ecological transition of fisheries, made up of researchers from L'Institut Agro (Didier GASCUEL, Florian QUEMPER, Quentin LE BRAS, Romain MOUILLARD), AgroParisTech (Harold LEVREL) and EHESS-CNRS (Roberto CASATI).

The research group was initiated by the BLOOM association in collaboration with The Shift Project and with the support of the L'Atelier des Jours à Venir cooperative.

It's time to open our eyes and put an end to this aberration! Let's promote small-scale fishing, a genuine engine for job creation and sustainable economic development. Let's fight for a future where oceans and workers are not sacrificed on the altar of industrial profits!
