Last month, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the development of multi-annual management plans for demersal fisheries in Western Waters of the European Union. With this consultation, the Commission invites all citizens, NGOs, fishermen, fishing advisory councils and other organizations to make their contribution.
The purpose of this initiative is to contribute to give a direct view of the achievement of the objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy, in particular the long-term sustainability of fish stocks and the application of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management.
The consultation closes on 11th September 2015. ENT intends to make its contribution to this consultation, if another organization is interested, please contact us for further information.
