Other Media | Industrias Pesqueras: Europêche celebrates that the number of overfished stocks in the Atlantic has fallen by 50% since 2007

Friday, May 08, 2020

The European fisheries association, Europêche, today echoed the STEFC's annual report on the progress of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This document "brings excellent news about the good progress in the state of fish stocks in the EU," says the organization, which exemplifies the drop in the number of overfished stocks in the Northeast Atlantic, which have dropped by 50 % since 2007.

“On average, for all the stocks evaluated in this area, the fishing pressure has been reduced by almost half in the last 20 years, reaching Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) levels for most of them. As a consequence, fish stocks have increased significantly, reaching levels 50% higher in 2018 than in 2010, ”explains Europêche, who points out that, however,“ more efforts are still needed, particularly in the Mediterranean ”.
