Giving Small-Scale Fisheries A Place
On June 25th, also in Amsterdam, The European Commission's DG MARE is hosting a Policy Day with Too Big To Ignore - the global partnership for small-scale fisheries. Common Fisheries Policy reform extends Member States’ rights to restrict fishing zones in their coastal waters and new financial arrangements aim to provide support – but do we know enough to govern these fisheries effectively? This event will bring policy makers, fishers, NGOs and scientists together to understand and address the challenges.
