On the celebration of World Fisheries Day, Rise Up sent an open letter to key United Nations bodies and leaders to acknowledge, endorse and actively involve small-scale fishers and fish workers, Indigenous people and local communities in discussions and decisions aimed at restoring a healthy ocean and healthy inland waters. The letter has been endorsed and signed by 55 RISE UP member organizations and supporters, including Seas At Risk.

The letter is available in English, FrenchPortuguese and Spanish.
