Purpose and Scope of the Policy Brief:
The Landing Obligation (LO) was introduced in the Common Fisheries Policy of 2014 and requires that all catches of certain fish species are landed. This Policy Brief provides an overview of the current status and initial experiences, barriers, and opportunities with regard to applying the LO in the Mediterranean. The Policy Brief is written for policy makers, the fishing industry, NGO’s and citizens with an interest in fisheries management and is based on policy documents, stakeholder interviews, meetings and literature.
