EU Fisheries Control System

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission (EC) published a proposal for the revision of the fisheries control system in response to loopholes identified in the current legislation and following the European Court of Auditors’ call for more efforts in European Union fisheries controls.

The NGOs, which include the Coalition for Fair Fisheries Arrangements, ClientEarth, the Environmental Justice Foundation, The Fisheries Secretariat, Oceana, Our Fish, The Pew Charitable Trusts, Seas At Risk work with key decision makers and stakeholders to ensure that the EU will deliver a robust control system.
