With more than 90% of EU fish stocks at risk of being reduced to unsustainable levels by 2022 as a consequence of current patterns of over-fishing, this session will examine how far the Commissioner's latest reform proposals for the Common Fisheries Policy are likely to deliver more fish and more economically viable fishing industries in the future.    

Witness

At 11.00 am, Grimond Room, Portcullis House

  • Maria Damanaki, Commissioner, DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, European Commission

The session is open to the press and the public. Please allow half an hour to clear security.
