EU Landing Obligation meeting - one for the diary!



The first public hearing to discuss the impact of the Landing Obligation since full implementation is due to take place on the 19th February from 14:30 - 16:30 next week. You can sign up for alerts and updates to these meetings using this link here:

Landing obligation is a long-standing policy goal of the EU Common Fisheries Policy that requires fishers to bring all catch ashore eliminating discards at sea. The policy has been phased in gradually over the years and is fully implemented starting this year, 2019. The speakers’ profiles combine first-hand industry expertise with scientific analysis. The audience would receive the most recent overview about the implementation of this important component of the fisheries policy.
