Hundreds of thousands of people across the European Union supported a historic reform of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy, or CFP. EU Member States have committed themselves to rebuilding fish stocks and to ending the wasteful practice of discarding fish at sea. They agreed to legislation that will end EU overfishing by 2015 where possible, and by 2020 at the latest.
This new legislation came into force 1 January 2014, but it still has to be implemented effectively so that the CFP reform results in change on the water.
Join us in keeping the pressure on decision-makers to bring a rapid end to overfishing by 2018 at the latest in the north-western waters of Europe.
We believe the EU can deliver healthy oceans with abundant fish and wildlife contributing to human well-being. Decision-makers have shown they have the courage to put the legislation in place to make that happen; now let’s support them and turn these words into reality in north-western European waters.
