Danish fisheries and the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy - Greatest impact in the areas of discards, (October 2013)

The reform of the European Fisheries Policy is expected to bring about significant changes in the way capture fisheries are managed in the EU. Among other objectives the reform aims at a ban on discards, the sustainable exploitation of stocks, decentralised management with simplified rules, and a new market policy. What are these policy initiatives going to mean for the Danish fisheries sector?
The European Commission estimates discarding at some 23% of total EU catches with a substantially higher proportion in some fisheries. A DTU Aqua report from 2012 estimates that in 2010 discards in Danish waters from commercial fleets amounted to 21,500 tonnes or 26% of total catches. Read more about the reform and how the ban on discards will prompt changes in the Eurofish Magazine.
