The focus of the tour is on cod fishing which is particularly rife in these waters and is endangering the population of the species. Greenpeace fears that, if fishing for cod is allowed to continue, then cod will be wiped out completely in the North Sea. They call for the implementation of Marine Reserves which would specify areas where fish would be protected.
