Don’t eat animals –
it hurts the ocean!

We at F.E.P. know how heartbreaking it is to see images of sea turtles, seals, birds, and other animals caught in nets. The continued demand for eating sea creatures is why fishing equipment exists to begin with, so by eating animals from the sea, we are indirectly responsible for the cruelty inflicted upon those sea turtles, seals, birds, and more. The ocean and animals who call it home suffer tremendously, and we MUST do our part to stop the suffering we inflict on them. Ultimately, demand generates exploitation, and by choosing to go vegan, we can help end the cycle of exploitation, suffering, and destruction.
