The EU fisheries policy may seem complicated, but it is actually pretty simple: we must fish less now so we can fish more tomorrow. The infographic below explains the Common Fisheries Policy in five minutes.
Important discussions are taking place in the European Parliament right now and there are divisions between MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) across all national delegations and political groups.
Fish For the Future is a cross-party group of MEPs who want to end overfishing and rebuild fish stocks. We are fighting against those who prefer the short term benefit of allowing fishermen to catch the last remaining fish over ensuring European fishermen a long term future.
Short term kindness will kill the fishing industry. Make your voice heard. Share our guide (easy sharing below the image) – and tell your MEP to support Fish For the Future.
