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.
Two of the key developers of the Manual will discuss the management tools presented in the document and elaborate on how they can be practically applied on the water, drawing on a number of fisheries management success stories in Europe and around the world.
