Global solutions to save the world's oceans

Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, will today underline the urgency of putting in place the right rules to protect the oceans at international level. Together with Trevor Manuel and José Maria Figueres of the Global Ocean Commission (GOC), she will co-host the conference “Re-energising the Oceans” on global ocean governance in Brussels today, which will be followed by a press conference at the European Commission's Berlaymont press room at 12:30. The conference will debate around the fight against illegal fishing, an update of international ocean governance rules and the Global Ocean Commission’s recommendations for ocean health. According to Commissioner Damanaki, "the EU has shown international leadership in fighting overfishing, fighting illegal fishing, and getting rules in place for sustainable growth on our oceans. But all this will not be enough if we do not update our rules at international level. There are important legal gaps which make that parts of the high seas is legal ‘no-man’s land’”.
