In preparation for the action plan the Commission is seeking your views on a
number of possible actions outlined in its
consultation document published today. Contributors have until 9
August 2010 to send their comments, as well as sharing their ideas for
other possible measures which could be introduced.
In parallel to the consultation, a study will also be conducted to deliver
recommendations on best practices and look at the economic, social and
environmental impacts of measures to reduce incidental catches. The results of
both the consultation and the study will then feed into the action plan
scheduled for adoption in 2011.
