Will you help protect them?
Our reefs are our home. They protect us from the sea, they provide us with food and they bring us joy. We need to keep our reefs healthy so that they can continue to provide for us.
Fishing is in our culture but if we don’t fish in the right way then we may not be able to keep fishing for generations to come. By learning more about the species that live on our reefs and which ones are vulnerable to fishing, you can help protect our reefs so that we can all #FishForTomorrow.
Your reefs aren’t as resilient as you might think - if key species aren’t protected, the habitat for the food on your plate could disappear.
But by choosing not to catch the fish you’ve seen on this page, you can personally make a difference and help this ecosystem continue to thrive. Every time you decide to #FishForTomorrow, you’re helping preserve the unique Maldivan way of life.

Thousands of groupers come together when they breed. These natural spectacles are called spawning aggregations. Fishing on spawning aggregations drives populations down because groupers are not given the chance to breed successfully.
