Previous editions

This year's edition of the World Day for the End of Fishing was a huge success, with an ever growing mobilization. It gives hope in the long task that will be the liberation of fishes and the end of their exploitation. More and more people are starting to realize that aquatic animals, too, are indeed animals, and deserve rights. 

This page gathers a selection of events that happened in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The WoDEF was founded in 2016 by Swiss animal liberation group PEA - Pour l'Égalité Animale. Please help spread the word and rally more groups around the planet. For the fishes!
