In September the Plenary of the European Parliament will vote on MEP Ulrike Rodust’s report concerning the European Commission’s proposal for a multi-annual plan for demersal fisheries in the North Sea. If properly designed, the North Sea Multi-Annual Plan could make a significant contribution to ending overfishing and restoring fish stocks in line with the Common Fisheries Policy, which was significantly shaped by the European Parliament. This position paper lists the NGO priorities such as that the same management targets must apply to all demersal fish stocks and the inclusion of provisions for recreational fisheries.
