Joint NGO letters to MEPs on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

About

On October 23rd, the European Parliament will vote on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the financial instrument of the Common Fisheries Policy. NGOs are thus calling on MEPs to vote in favour of subsidies that will support ending EU overfishing, and not fuel continued overcapacity and destructive fishing practices.

Please find below the letters sent to the heads of delegation from around Europe.
