Implementing the fish-landing obligation

20-04-2015

A central objective of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy adopted in December 2013 is the obligation for fishermen to land all their catches, and thus end the practice of 'discarding' fish. The Commission has proposed a package of amendments to existing legislation, in order to review the specific measures which conflict with this new obligation.
