Making restoration & fisheries go hand in hand

The EU Nature Restoration Law (NRL) is in its final stage of negotiations, where the European Parliament and the Council of the EU will agree a final law. The positions of these two institutions are similar, but the Parliament’s version of the law goes one step further when it comes to fisheries.

The NRL is the EU’s legacy moment to protect marine life and biodiversity for generations to come. As well as benefitting our blue planet, it will help protect jobs in the marine sector, keep food systems running, and fight climate change.
