|EU pledges to improve Mediterranean fish stocks|

The European Union has highlighted its concern surrounding the decline of Mediterranean fisheries, prompting the planning of a new strategy for the area.
European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu has launched a dialogue with Ministers from EU and non-EU countries to, “reverse the dramatic decline of Mediterranean fisheries.”
In contrast to the North-East Atlantic, where more and more stocks are being fished sustainably, the Mediterranean Sea is seeing declining fisheries despite the conservation efforts of both regulators and fishermen. The European Commission has said it is concerned with what this could mean for the thousands of fishermen active in the area.
"The facts are undisputed – fish stocks in the Mediterranean are shrinking. Some are on the verge of depletion,” Vella said. “All in all, 93 per cent of the fish stocks assessed are over-exploited. This is an environmental but also a social issue, as it represents a clear threat to the way of life of fishing communities around the Mediterranean."
