Actor Jared Leto took to twitter to help promote a strong message from Greenpeace. The global fishing industry is ripping life from the water faster than it can be replaced.

Global fishing fleets contain giant fishing vessels known as super trawlers, which deplete stock and cause major damage to ecosystems. The most notable of these super trawlers is the Margiris, which is now looking to threaten the waters of Australia. If allowed to enter, this will be the largest fishing vessel to ever enter Australian waters.

To help spread the word, Leto posted to twitter:

@JaredLeto: “Please do this “@Greenpeace: global fishing 2.5x greater than oceans
can sustain. Join @GreenpeaceAustP stop trawlers: http://goo.gl/0KJTc

The African country of Senegal has banned all super trawlers after its waters were plundered by the Margiris and similar vessels.

Greenpeace and Leto are asking people to sign a petition addressed to the Australian Government. The petition asks that they create a similar ban to that of Senegal. The goal is to help raise awareness and stop fishing trawlers altogether.

Learn more and sign the petition.
