EU Fisheries Reform Needed To Prevent Disastrous Drop In Harvest Over Next Decade

October 16, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Fishing fleets in the European Union will haul in 30 percent less fish by 2022 than in 2009 unless fish populations are managed sustainably, a report commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund warns. To prevent a disaster of this magnitude, WWF says robust regulatory reform is needed. The European Parliament supports a call from the EU executive to revamp the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), but will not adopt the position until January. WWF says if EU lawmakers implement robust fisheries reform, and allow stocks to return to “sustainable levels,” fisherman could harvest 2.8 million tons (80 percent) more fish in EU waters, providing an extra €2.1 billion a year in income.
