Why bottom trawling must be banned by the EU

Steve Trent, Founder and CEO of the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), calls on the EU to introduce stronger restrictions on bottom trawling, particularly in marine protected areas. EJF is a founding member of the TBT Coalition.

UK fishing licences for bottom-trawling could be unlawful, says Oceana

The British government’s granting of fishing licences to more than 1,000 UK and EU vessels for 2022, which will permit bottom-trawling and dredging in marine protected areas, could be unlawful unless conditions to safeguard ocean habitats are imposed, says TBT Coalition member Oceana.
