Fischereireform

“Fisheries reform”; the EU passed a reformatory Common Fisheries Policy this week with a very solid majority. The Greens celebrated. Details still need to be worked out with individual countries’ governments, but the policy is intended to help combat overfishing and will, e.g., make it illegal for vessels to dump part of their catch back into the ocean in order to meet fishing quotas or because the caught fish have low market value. It is also supposed to stop overfishing in developing countries.
