Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU's risky move on (un)sustainable fisheries
Pressures on the EU from industrial fishery lobbies to maintain business as usual in the Western Mediterranean may put both fish stocks and small fishermen's livelihoods at risk, while also undermining the economic sustainability of the industry itself, as we reveal in a three-part investigation, the first of which concerns EU mislegislation.
Some 230,000 tonnes of  Mediterranean seafood are discarded every year (about 18 percent of total catches), including species or sizes of fish unsuitable for the market.

On 10 April, the EU scientific committee on fisheries released a report confirming the negative trends of Mediterranean fish stocks.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
