ClientEarth focuses on legislation to find practical solutions to environmental challenges. The organization provides legal support to NGOs that focus on environmental issues. ClientEarth fights for the passage of environmental legislation, then monitors whether the laws actually achieve the intended effect. The legal experts at ClientEarth focus their attention on themes such as climate change, natural resource protection, biodiversity, health, and the environment. Sustainable fishing is one of ClientEarth’s focus areas. The organization works to achieve healthy, fish-filled seas by advocating for legislation to combat overfishing.

Adessium Foundation is supporting ClientEarth in its activities geared toward sustainable fishing. The goal is to make sure the provisions in the EU regulations on fisheries control and illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing are not weakened, and that these regulations are implemented effectively.
