The campaign is asking people to sign the following letter:
To Commissioner Damanaki, Members of the European Parliament and all member state governments,I have signed the letter, but it doesn't provide any solutions. I think a first step would be stop the EU fishing subsidies. From 2000 to 2006 the EU fishing subsidy was 6bn EUR.
I have seen images of dead and dying fish discarded in European waters.
I understand that the current Common Fisheries Policy leads to discarding on a vast scale; for example, half of all fish caught in the North Sea are being discarded because of the current quota system imposed by the CFP.
I want this senseless waste of food to end. I want you to use your influence to stop this unacceptable and shameful practice.
I am supporting the Fish Fight campaign to help bring about this vital change in our seas.
