About me

Introduction The DSCC was founded in 2004, to address the issue of bottom trawling on the high seas in the absence of an effective governance regime. Using strategic analysis as the basis for its campaign, the DSCC has effectively and consistently targeted the UNGA and other international fora. The coalition is made up of over 70 non-governmental organizations (NGOs), fishers organizations and law and policy institutes, all committed to protecting the deep sea. A coordination team works together with a Steering Group that currently consists of the Ecology Action Centre, Greenpeace International, Marine Conservation Biology Institute, Natural Resources Defense Council, Pew Environment Group and Seas at Risk. The DSCC has developed a formidable international team of scientists, policy and communication experts, lawyers and political activists who on behalf of the deep sea have established a strong reputation and profile on the issue at the UN and in other fora.
