STUDY CRITICAL OF BALTIC SEA FISHING: A new report says EU countries on the Baltic Sea are failing to accurately monitor their fishing vessels in regards to the landing obligation, according to a statement on Wednesday. Commissioned by environmental group Our Fish, the report says that 90 percent of undersized cod are still being discarded in the region, amounting to 11.5 million fish in 2016. Under EU law, fishermen are required to bring all of their catches ashore in the Baltic Sea. Our Fish calls on EU countries to strengthen their monitoring and enforcement of fishing legislation.
