With the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) at a crucial phase, Seas At Risk are holding a one day seminar on the 28th October that will focus on low impact fisheries and the reform itself.

The seminar will address a range of issues concerning the detrimental impacts that fisheries have on the marine environment - both directly on marine species and habitats and indirectly through the emission of greenhouse gases.

It will also examine the role of changing gears, whereby the fishing industry can decrease these detrimental impacts, and lower fuel costs. Furthermore, panelists and speakers will look at the hurdles faced by fishers that prevent them from switching to low impact fisheries.

With the reform of the CFP just a couple of years from completion, the seminar will also address what contribution the reform might have towards a shift to low impact fisheries.
