Towards a more sustainable fishing policy

The European Parliament has recently adopted a report on the sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources. According a recent press release by ALDE, Nils Torvalds took over the report from his predecessor, current Minister of Defence in Finland - Carl Haglund.  The report is one of six reports that form the legislative package concerning the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.  
Speaking of overfishing, Torvalds pointed out "[It]  is the single largest problem of today's fisheries policy. Two thirds of Europe's fishstocks are overfished, which has led to a decline in yearly catches by 1,5million tonnes and the loss of 130 000 jobs during the last tenyears.    It is  common sense not to fish largerquantities than nature can reproduce. Unfortunately this common sense isnot taken seriously in Europe today".
