Pew and EU Transparency launch Fishsubsidy.org
Brussels, 25th June 2009. The Pew Environment Group and EU Transparency launched www.fishsubsidy.org, a new website dedicated to presenting data on fishing subsidies between 1994 and 2006.
This means both the public and those working in EU institutions can see for themselves who has been receiving EU subsidies.
The website aims to be an essential tool in reforming the Common Fisheries Policy, which was launched in April 2009.
