Overfishing: you can end it! - NGO briefing
But it is not too late: The on-going reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is the first big opportunity for the European Parliament to co-legislate on fisheries. In December, the Fisheries Committee took a momentous step towards turning the tide on overfishing in Europe, by agreeing to a strong and well-designed set of reform proposals that could overhaul the EU’s failed fisheries policy.
NGOs recommend that you support overall the Fisheries Committee proposal for reform so as to deliver long-lasting benefits for Europe’s citizens, fishermen and the marine environment.
