EU fishing boats could soon need to prove they are environmentally sustainable to fish outside the waters of the European Union, thanks to a vote by MEPs this week.
FisheryProgress.org will be a valuable resource to those interested in making fishing more sustainable.
The Welsh Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs has made some inaccurate and misleading claims concerning sustainable seafood.
An online petition saying seafood sellers’ claims might be misleading fails to capture the commitments of Sustainable Seafood Coalition businesses to harmonise their claims, and source responsibly.
On November 9, the European Parliament’s fisheries committee will vote on a new piece of legislation intended to regulate fishing operations of European vessels outside EU waters. We hope they take this chance and choose to protect the high seas.
