WWF Goes to Court Over Cod

Mar 23,2007 SACN


"The Council of the European Union is being taken to the European Court of Justice by WWF over its handling of cod fisheries in the region.

The conservation group alleges that by going against repeated scientific warnings on the sustainability of cod stocks, the Council has breached EU environmental law."

Green Consumer Guide

"Congratulations to WWF for promising to take European ministers to court for their disgraceful and continuing failure to apply scientific advice to the conservation of cod.

Increasingly it looks as if American-style legal action by angry citizens is the only way of reforming the mad, bad Common Fisheries Policy before we run out of fish.

Go get 'em Woofers."

Charles Clover in the Telegraph
