NEF also argues that in 2019 the state of the European Union is going to catch on 312 thousand tons more than what scientists consider “acceptable profits”. 55 of the 120 quota allocated by the European Union, was above the recommended norm.
The basis for quotas for the catch, which is divided into shares between countries is an annual evaluation of scientists, which determine the amount of fish you can catch, causing the ocean of a population of damage.
“The European Union continues to Deplete fish stocks in the northeast Atlantic. Quotas in 2019 is 16% higher than recommendations of scientists and 9% above quota 2018,” the report says.
