Important decision on trawl ban at the Social Democrat Congress

The S-Congress has decided to introduce a total ban on bottom trawling in Sweden. The decision is entirely in line with the BalticSea2020's comprehension and ongoing work to save the Baltic Sea's genetically unique cod stock and support the small-scale coastal fishery. 

For more information about the decision, please read an article in the Swedish news paper "Aftonbladet" here (in Swedish). Also read the BalticSea2020's more detailed article on trawling, published in "Dagens Nyheter" on December 24, 2016, click here.

The Social Democrats party congress will take place on 8-12 April 2017 at the Swedish fair in Gothenburg.
