Supertrawler hearing at EP

Published by FiskerForum, 03-10-2017 · info@fiskerforum.dk

The European Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries is holding a public hearing on the sustainability of supertrawlers later this month to examine the various impacts of these fishing vessels.

According to the European Parliament, the objective of the Super-trawlers: destructive or sustainable? public hearing is to establish a better understanding of the role of supertrawlers from the point of view of the industry as well as from a small-scale and artisanal perspective and at the same time to analyse the environmental and ecological aspects of super-trawlers. 

The 9th October hearing is to be chaired by Alain Cadec, chair of the Committee on Fisheries. Industry and socio-economic perspectives will be presented by Europêche Vice-President Gerard van Balsfoort and LIFE Platform Deputy Director Brian O'Riordan.

Environmental and ecological perspectives will be presented by Professor Pere Puig Alenyà of the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona from an academic viewpoint and by Pavel Klinckhamers of Greenpeace speaking from an NGO perspective.

This will be followed by a debate, questions and answers and closing remarks by Alain Cadec.
