On the occasion of the Ocean Pavilion event, organised by Surfrider Foundation Europe just ahead of the G7 Summit in France in August, Monica Verbeek, Executive Director at Seas At Risk, called on the G7 leaders to take stronger action. She noted that the G7 should take a leading role to end overfishing by 2020 and to ensure the implementation of a coherent network of effective, well-protected and well-managed Marine Protected Areas, covering at least 30% of coastal and marine waters by 2030 globally.
