Staying Up All Night to Get Quota

The Our Fish team is in Brussels, where EU fisheries ministers are gathering to decide on fishing levels for over 120 species from the North Sea and Atlantic. In previous years, quotas have been set far higher than is recommended by fisheries scientists.

On Wednesday morning, when minister stumble, bleary-eyed, out of all night negotiations, will they have chose the path of sustainability, or continued down the road of destructive overfishing? Our Fish Eye is here to find out – keep checking this page, where we will be adding live video and news updates and trying to find out just what goes on behind the closed doors of the EU fisheries council.

EU fisheries ministers are in Brussels to negotiate fishing limits for over 120 of North Sea and Atlantic fish – in previous years, quotas have been set far beyond scientific advice.
