Friends of Hector

Friends of Hector

Friends of Hector is an international campaign dedicated to the protection of sharks and sea turtles from being caught as ‘bycatch'. Some of the most troublesome fishing gears for sharks are longlines, trawls and gillnets. Hector the Blue Shark lives in the Northwest Atlantic and is sick of losing his friends to the hooks of Nova Scotia’s various fisheries.

Hector is busy recruiting individuals and organizations from around the world to join him in his demand for Canada to stop standing in the way of an international proposal to protect the endangered porbeagle shark from ending up on any more fishing lines.
