Discards and high levels of bycatch threaten to undermine effective reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP)

Our "Simply..." series of briefings addresses current and important issues relating to the reform of the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy. They are intended to:

  • give a short introduction to the issue,
  • explain the significance of it in the reform, and
  • give our recommendations for how best to address the issue through the reform.

In no longer than two pages and using non-technical language that doesn’t require background knowledge, we hope these documents will be helpful for policy-makers, NGOs, or members of the public that may not have the time to read our more comprehensive briefings.
