Industrial Fishing In Spawning Cod Closed Areas

EDM number 481 in 2000-01, proposed by Norman A Godman on 22/03/2001.

That this House notes with both deep regret and serious concern the decision taken by the European Union to allow a derogation for sand eel fishing in the spawning cod closed areas; disputes the assertion made by the EU that the estimated bycatch of cod in the sand eel fishery is less than two per cent. and firmly believes that industrial fishing should be banned altogether in the interests of fisheries conservation and management.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
