On August 25th this year I will have a crack at my first (and hopefully only) 10km open water swim in the not so balmy North Atlantic, to raise money for an incredible project I had the pleasure of dealing with personally called Global Fishing Watch.
I'll spare all the details, but basically, watch the Simpsons episode with the "Burns Omni-Net" used to to "sweep the sea clean" because give or take, thats actually happening, and the project making serious inroads into stopping such "cleaning" are this lot.
It's not about stopping fishing, the opposite in fact, it's about managing fishing practices so that in 10 years there are still fish to fish and fish to look at. I'll stop saying fish now.
All Donations from the swim will be money well spent. fish fish fish. and sharks and some other stuff.
