Since 2015 the landing obligation is being implemented on a gradual basis. Each fishery has its own specificities and differences which makes the implementation of the landing obligation a major challenge for fisheries management. The purpose of this hearing is to assess the state of play of its implementation and discuss some possible trials and solutions developed by different stakeholders over the last few years.
