Fish bombing is the practice of setting off explosives to kill fish for consumption and sale. It indiscriminately kills animals in the blast area and devastates coral reefs, which can take decades to recover. Stop Fish Bombing uses blast detection technology and law enforcement to deter fish bombers. The project also includes community involvement, which allows people living in and around marine protected areas affected by fish bombing to assess the issues and determine the best ways to solve them.
