    Environmental Defense Fund EU Discard Reduction Manual Webinar

    Environmental Defense Fund recently published the EU Discard Reduction Manual to help support those seeking ways to implement the EU Common Fisheries Policy Landing Obligation. And now invites stakeholders to join them for a webinar looking at how the Manual can be used and to answer questions on its contents.

    The webinar is for anyone interested in finding ways to implement the Landing Obligation. The webinar is open to fishermen and their representatives, fishery managers, academics, scientists, NGOs, politicians and European Commission officials.
