Global environment organisation WWF and the leading associations for European seafood processors and retailers will work together to push for solutions to the crisis of European seas and fisheries.
The EU Fish Processors’ and Traders’ Association, AIPCE-CEP
and Euro Coop
, which represent retail, wholesale and international trade interests to the EU, and WWF will be jointly seeking reforms to the troubled European Common Fisheries Policy to lay the basis for sustainable fisheries and a sustainable fishing industry.
The current EU Common Fisheries Policy has failed to secure the health of EU fisheries, and has put most of them under severe strain, compromising the ability to offer the EU population the sustainably harvested fish they are demanding.
