Damanaki responds to Pew study

20 Oct 2011

This week the Pew Environment Group published the study "Mind the Gap: An Analysis of the Mediterranean Bluefin Trade".

Commissioner Damanaki stated: "We are concerned about the figures mentioned in the Pew study. Proper control and compliance are key to a successful policy. At the upcoming annual meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) in Istanbul (9-19 November), the EU will table the idea of electronic data recording, to replace the existing paper catch reports. This is one of the weaknesses of the present control system identified by Pew."
