Our Fish publish report on discards of cod in the Baltic Sea

Yesterday, the organization Our Fish report released the report "Illegal Baltic cod discards are wasting fisheries, communities and the environment".

But despite the ban, the discards continue - a huge waste of resources. The cod in the Baltic Sea is not in a good condition. It is now time for EU member states to put an end to the illegal discards of the Baltic Sea's most important predatory fish, says Our Fish in the report.
