Slow Food Worried about Newly Adopted Decisions on Marine Environments

This week in Brussels, Belgium and Dubrovnik, Croatia, two decisions were made, which will cause great concern for the future of the sea and fish populations. On Monday, EU ministers of agriculture and fisheries decided on catch limits for economically relevant deep-sea fish stocks for 2019 and 2020, while the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) increased the authorized catch quotas of bluefin tuna by 20%. Slow Food is concerned that by favoring the interests of various players in the market, marine ecosystems are put at risk.
