1.4 Greening the next generation Common Fisheries Policy

23 May - 14:30 - 16:00

In light of the current reform of the Common Fisheries Policy and the proposal presented by the Commission, this session will look at possible ways of tackling the most important issues facing fisheries today, such as the overcapacity of the EU fleet, discards, by-catch and the overfishing of most commercial stocks. Methods and techniques to reduce the impact of fisheries on the marine environment will also be examined, with a view to making fishing a more resource-efficient activity.
