Greenpeace takes action against sea overfishing in Gdansk, Poland

Weather Gdańsk, Poland - 11 July 2012

Greenpeace hosted an exhibition and information session on sea overfishing in the Gdansk city center in Poland on July 11, 2012. 

According to the Greenpeace's Call for Action, the European Union's Common Fisheries Policy is the last chance to halt the demise of the European fish population and the EU fishing sector. Greenpeace believes that recent agreements between members of the EU would allow overfishing to continue. 

Greenpeace's Call for Action outlines the five steps needed to reform EU fisheries, which include recovering fish stocks and reducing the risk of depletion, transitioning toward sustainable fishing practices, reducing fishing power to sustainable levels, protecting the marine environment by limiting impact, and making the allocation of quotas and subsidies conditional on conscientious environmental practices. 

Poland's environmental stance has remained controversial, after the coutnry refused to sign the European Commission's energy roadmap to 2050.

"Greenpeace activists call for action and for support the EU fisheries reform (EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP)) by the EU countries."
