About the Blue Fish Campaign
The Blue Fish Campaign raises awareness of potentially polluting substances and their impact on our Island's water environment.
Blue fish logo
Surface water road drains are designed to remove rain water from roofs, footpaths and roads. They must not be used to dispose of litter or waste chemicals like paints, detergents or oils. We identify these drains by putting a blue fish icon next to them.
Fish stencils are available free from the Department of the Environment.

Create a pollution prevention action plan which will enable you to consider and reduce the pollution risks on your site. It will also help you to think about how to reduce, reuse, recycle and dispose of waste appropriately on your site. Eco active businesses who store or transport potentially polluting substances are required to develop a pollution prevention plan as part of the requirements to join the eco active business network.

The Blue Fish Campaign is part of eco actives work with schools. The Blue Fish Campaign is a great whole school project that can be used in the water topic within the eco schools programme. To learn more about the eco schools programme visit the eco schools UK website.
The Blue Fish campaign represents a fun and educational project which will provide students with useful information about the Island's water environment and how they can help protect it for the future.
A curriculum based teacher’s tool has been developed to provide teachers with all the resources they need to incorporate pollution prevention into their lessons.
