Advocacy document against electric fishing

As part of our campaign against electric fishing, we have prepared an advocacy document that reviews the many environmental and social problems caused by electric fishing, but also the underlying political and financial scandal: in 2006, the European Commission went against scientific advice to allow this prohibited fishing method. Since then, millions of euros of public money have been injected into “research” and the equipment of fishing vessels with electric trawls.

Meanwhile, artisanal fishers are going bankrupt.
