Fisheries committee fails to protect seabirds and the sea

birdlifeECA“Today the Fisheries committee of the European Parliament voted on the Technical Measures Regulation – and unfortunately failed to take the necessary steps to tackle seabird bycatch and end overfishing. The committee didn’t set up EU wide rules to prevent seabirds from drowning in fishing gear. Seabirds are caught in many different kinds of fisheries and fishing gear, including in longlines and gillnets. These unintentional deaths, known as ‘bycatch’, are a major threat to seabirds with an estimated 200,000 dying every year in European waters. The Fisheries committee also failed to establish a binding target for reduction of catching juvenile fish. Catching fish before they are able to reproduce leads to decline of stocks and harms both the environment and the long-term viability of the fishing sector.”
