Protecting the eel stock – Questions to EU Ministers

20 NGOs have written to EU ministers and called upon them to explain what they will do to protect the endangered European eel after the EU Commission proposed to ban marine catches of adult eels.
  1. Do you agree that the state of the European eel is critical and that eel must have better protection than what the current recovery plan provides?
  2. What further measures do you envisage in addition to closing the EU-wide marine fisheries?
  3. What measures will you take at a national level to further protect the European eel?
