Green light for new sustainable EU fisheries policy from 2014

The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) reform package, including measures to halt overfishing and a ban on discarding fish at sea, Parliament's key aims, was approved in a final plenary vote. Labelling rules have also been overhauled, to improve information for consumers. The new legislation should allow for more sustainable fishing and take effect on time, at the start of 2014. Fishermen will have to respect the "maximum sustainable yield" (MSY), i.e. catch no more than a given stock can reproduce in a given year. The aim is to restore and maintain fish stocks above levels that can produce the MSY.

Fishing vessels will have to land at least 95% of all catches to end the practice of discarding unwanted species of fish back into the sea. Landed catches of fish that are undersized, for example, would be restricted to uses other than human consumption. Read more HERE
