This report, explores, and demonstrates, how EU payments for “temporary cessation” of fishing in the context of the current European Monetary Fisheries Fund, are not only an ineffective management tool for reducing fishing effort, but also ineffective in supporting marine conservation efforts. Instead, cessation payments maintain fishing overcapacity, which drives overfishing. The report has been carried out by Seas At Risk and BirdLife Europe.
