ICCAT Meeting: Discrepancies on the Mediterranean Swordfish recovery plan

Yesterday, 14 November 2016, the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) began negotiations on the situation of the swordfish, shark and bluefin tuna fisheries in Vilamoura (Portugal).

The fisheries sector and NGOs have agreed on the need to establish measures to protect Mediterranean swordfish and to adopt a recovery plan; However, they differ in the model: Should it be submitted to TAC or not?
