On 30/03/2012, in All posts, by Animal Welfare Intergroup

The Animal Welfare Intergroup announced that written declaration 47 on fish as a common good has reached majority support in the House on Thursday 29 March.

We congratulate Kriton ARSENIS, Raül ROMEVA i RUEDA, Guido MILANA, Corinne LEPAGE and Maria do Céu PATRÃO NEVES for this good result.

Many thanks to all MEPs who have responded to the Intergroup’s call for support of WD 47and have signed the written declaration.

We hope that this declaration will contribute to highlight the importance of fish and marine wildlife as a global common good and that the Commission and the Member States will implement the necessary measures to protect marine resources, to ensure access to and sustainable use of these resources – through international coordination.

Awareness raising of EU citizens will be key in this regard.
