Published by Intrafish (Paywall) November 15th 2017: New report exposes ‘illegal’ discarding in Baltic Sea fisheries

‘By failing to properly implement the discard ban in the Baltic Sea, EU governments are jeopardizing the sustainability of fish stocks,’ campaigners say.
A report published Wednesday on the discarding of Baltic fish reveals compliance with the reformed EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) landing obligation is almost “non- existent” in the Baltic Sea.
Authors of the report titled ‘Thrown Away: How Illegal Discarding in the Baltic Sea is Failing EU Fisheries and Citizens’ claim this is “exposing the European seafood supply chain to unprecedented levels of illegal behavior.”
