Latest study: Alternative Solutions for Driftnet Fisheries

Alternative solutions for driftnet fisheries

If you would like to know more about alternative solutions for driftnet fisheries then the latest study from Policy Department B might be what you are looking for.

More about the study: The principal environmental impact of driftnets is related to the bycatch of non-target species. In general driftnets have a high degree of size selectivity and can efficiently be regulated by mesh size. Few alternative fishing methods are available to catch the species targeted by driftnets,and the impact for some of these gears is controversial. Solutions are proposed to mitigate the environmental impact of driftnet fisheries by alternative fishing gears and improvement of selectivity.

Landing obligation - Press conference on the outcome of interinstitutional negotiations

29-01-2015 - 17:11
MEPs pledge to ensure personal data and undeclared worker rights are upheld, place a ban on discarding healthy fish and welcome the EU year of development for 2015.

The rapporteur for the landing obligation report, Alain Cadec, held a press conference to discuss the state of negotiations and agreements reached between the Parliament and the Council.

The discard ban / landing obligation is one of the main objectives of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy, approved by the EP in December 2013. Discards are fish thrown back into the sea, usually because they are of an unwanted species or size. Most of these die, thus making it a wasteful practice.

The "landing obligation" regulation is needed to adapt seven current EU laws which conflict with the new rules. The ban is to take effect gradually, in stages, between now and 2019.

Discard ban: MEPs delay enforcement of sanctions on fishermen who fail to comply

PECH 29-01-2015 - 13:05

Fishermen will have two years to “adapt” before sanctions for failing to comply with the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) discard ban take effect, under a tentative deal struck by Parliament and Council on Thursday, with European Commission help. The agreement amends the “omnibus” regulation setting out detailed arrangements for enforcing the ban. (Fortsetzung lesen)
