We call upon the President of the European Commission and all European Fisheries Ministers to stop subsidising practices which lead to over-fishing and the wrecking of precious undersea habitats. The present system of fishing subsidies can, in the worst case scenario, also motivate illegal practices because the actual use of subsidies is unaudited. Therefore we call upon the President and the Fisheries Ministers to reform the subsidy system so that subsidies can be used to conserve and rebuild fish stocks to the point where they provide food security throughout Europe. This reform means marine reserves policed by fishermen, all funded by subsidy payments which are fully audited in an open and accountable way. It is clear that financial incentives must be given to conservation if we are to have a secure future.
