MedReAct contribution to the Western Mediterranean multi annual management plan

MedReAct contributionIn May 2016 the European Commission launched a public consultation on the Multiannual plan for the fisheries exploiting demersal stocks in the Western Mediterranean Sea.

Fish stocks in the Mediterranean are in a critical situation and some are on the verge of collapse. According to the most recent assessments, 93% of demersal fish stocks in the Western Mediterranean Sea are overfished.

The aim of the Commission’s consultation  is to contribute to  the achievement of the Common Fisheries Policy objectives, in particular the long term sustainability of fish stocks and the implementation of the ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management.

MedReAct welcomes this public consultation and the opportunity  to provide  its  views and recommendations to improve the state of demersal fish stocks and of marine ecosystems critical to their recovery.
