Ahead of the annual Council’s decisions on TACs & quotas that also affect millions on recreational fishers at sea, this RecFishing Forum’s event aimed at launching a dialogue between the EU decision-makers, scientific experts and anglers’ representatives on the issue of alternative fisheries management measures for angling species.
Presentations were given by David Mitchell (EAA) and Kevin Haase (Thünen Institute) on how international examples and science can bring solutions to better consider the often much underestimated social, economic and environmental impact of not taking the recreational fishermen’s interests into consideration when taking fisheries management decisions.
The European Parliament Forum on Recreational Fisheries and Aquatic Environment is supported by the European Anglers Alliance (EAA) and the European Fishing Tackle Trade Association (EFTTA).
