Size Matters!

Artisanal fishers and civil society groups are united in calling for the CFP reform to deliver sustainable European fisheries. On Monday October 10 2011, representatives of these groups are rallying for their voice to be taken onboard in the CFP reform. They will launch a joint declaration “Size Matters – Quality Counts” on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

The following day there will be a hearing in the European Parliament on the socio-economic viability of small-scale and coastal fisheries. (Photo and text courtesy of Ocean2012 and Corey Arnold)
