Manifesto for fair fisheries

Publication date: 
7 August, 2012

Joint declaration between Greenpeace, NUTFA, UK Fishermen’s Associations and fishermen on the reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy. 

The EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) has not worked and is not working for fish, fishermen, the marine environment, coastal communities, or consumers. The system is broken and the 2012 reform process is our best, last chance to fix it. 

We call on the UK government, the fishing industry, retailers, restaurateurs and all those for whom fish is an integral part of life, to show support for local, sustainable, coastal fishermen and be a voice for radical reform of the CFP.
