EU out of fish for 2015
Research from the New Economics Foundation (NEF) reveals the extent to which EU countries rely on fish from outside their waters to maintain their high levels of fish consumption:
- The EU27 brought forward its fish dependence day by 6 days, meaning it is less able to meet internal fish demand with EU catches.
- The EU27 now becomes fish dependent on 5th July, forward from 11th July, driven by a 475,000 tonnes reduction in domestic supply.
- The UK becomes fish dependent considerably later than the EU27 overall, on 12 September. This has been fairly stable for the past few years now.
