New hope for oceans in Europe

A historic change to restore thriving fisheries and communities

This year Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) helped usher in sweeping reforms to European Union fisheries policy. Now we need to put those reforms into action on the water in Europe—where 75% of fisheries are overfished. As a top global fishing power, Europe is central to EDF’s goal of creating thriving oceans in our lifetime. EDF and our partners have a conversation about this historic opportunity.
