Letter to Commissioner Sinkevičius on Misleading Statement Regarding Sustainability of EU Fishing


On Monday 10 May, 2021, a European Commission representative attending the Fisheries Committee meeting in the European Parliament made a misleading statement about the sustainability of fish available for sale in the EU. NGOs have written to the Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius, the Director General of DG MARE, and Members of the PECH Committee with our concerns about this misinformation. The EU has a long way to go to end overfishing and greenwashing will not help.
