Marinet writes to ICES to ask whether it can endorse statements made in the NFFO press release of 22nd July 2013

We provide here a copy of a letter dated 9th August 2013 which David Levy, Marinet chair, has written to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) to ask whether ICES can endorse the upbeat view of the NFFO (National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations) that fish stocks in the North Sea are once again “teeming” and healthy. ICES collects scientific data about fish stocks in the NE Atlantic, and worldwide. In Marinet’s letter to ICES, the question is also asked whether the scientific organisation can support a shift in EU fishing subsidies into expenditure on data collection and technology for the monitoring of sustainable fishing practices.
