In this letter, we ask fisheries MEPs to reject the political agreement that was reached on 12 December 2018 on the European Commission’s proposal for a multi-annual plan for fish stocks in the Western Waters during the plenary vote in Strasbourg on 11 February 2019.
The text resulting from the inter-institutional negotiations undermines key requirements of the CFP:
- It fails to ensure sustainable management of all Western Waters stocks;
- It allows for fishing above sustainable levels;
It fails to deliver long-term, ecosystem-based management for the Western Waters.
