On 9 October 2017 the Committee on Fisheries will organise a Public Hearing on "Super-trawlers: destructive or sustainable?".

The objective of this hearing is to better understand the role of super-trawlers from the point of view of the industry as well as from a small-scale and artisanal perspective and at the same time to analyse the environmental and ecological aspects of super-trawlers.
