Seminar: How should fishing quotas be set in the EU?
Where: European Parliament, Brussels, Room A5E-1
When: 30 November, 9:00 – 11:00
Event organised by cross-party group Fish For the Future
One key proposal in the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy is that EU fish stocks should be restored above levels which can produce Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) by 2015. What does MSY mean? What are the arguments for and against this proposal? What are the implications for the fishermen and the fish?
This seminar will provide a guide to these issues for MEPs who want to learn more about the Common Fisheries Policy reform.
