All citizens want fish-rich, healthy seas. The EU is governed democratically. So why are the EU’s seas fished out and on the brink of ecological collapse? The decisions are made in closed rooms, beyond democratic control.
The overfishing is not an accident – it is the result of a conscious policy.
According to the EU Fisheries Act from 2014, all fishing in the Union must be sustainable until 2020. Today, approximately forty percent of the stocks are overfished. The EU’s Council of Ministers is thus breaking the law.
