The EU comes to the aid of fragile marine ecosystems

Video

The European Commission published on the 17th of October 2007 a Communication aiming to protect the fragile ecosystems of the deep sea. Some of those ecosystems are indeed threatened by deep-water fishing, which has developed significantly during the two last decades.

The Commission has already taken measures to protect the ecosystems, which have been identified in Community waters. It now wishes to act and protect those witnesses of the rich marine biodiversity in the whole world.

It proposes to limit and better regulate some destructive fishing practices on those fragile ecosystems, mainly on coral reefs and sea mounts.
