Now is the time to secure a future for European fisheries - WWF Manifesto

Posted on 16 May 2010  | 
Excessive pressure on fish stocks has degraded the marine environment and made European waters an increasingly difficult place to run sustainable and profitable fisheries.

a sustainable livelihood for the fishing industry and fishing communities.

WWF Manifesto outlines the necessary elements of a revitalized, effective fisheries policy.
