The new Call of Duty: Vanguard game is making waves after its highly anticipated release this month.

Sea changers provide important support to protect our seas from overfishing, pollution and climate change. According to a report by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), cod stocks in the North Sea have decreased by 31% since 2015. And a 2020 report found that cod stocks in the UK seas were in a “dangerous state” thanks to overfishing.
Tom Pickerell, marine biologist and founder of Tomolamona Consulting, said: “Since 2017, stocks in the North Sea have declined year-on-year, with the quotas set above the scientific recommendations. Once again, we are at a critical moment for cod – and other fish species. Beyond the North Sea, the lowest adult cod population was recorded in western Scotland in 2020 and scientific evidence suggests that no cod may have been caught at all.
“We’ve been here before, however. The cod ‘recovery plan’ in the early 2000s helped bring stocks back to sustainable levels through restrictions on fishing days, the abandonment of boats and larger holes in the nets. The result was one Phase of growth and sustainability for the cod population. “
In just one of over 200 marine projects, Sea-Changers has directly targeted unsustainable cod fisheries through its project with Black Fish, helping monitor fishing practices in ports and markets – and uncovering harmful fishing practices.
With the release of Call of Duty in the headlines, Stakester hopes his unique initiative and contribution to Sea-Changers will forge the gaming world with the people behind protecting our world – and raising awareness of the brilliant Sharpening work done around marine conservation UNITED KINGDOM.

Tom Pickerell added, “Unique campaigns and unusual alliances like Stakester’s COD for Cod can help bring this important issue to new audiences – and support charities like Sea-Changers who are on the front lines fighting unsustainable fisheries. “
