Source: The Left “The fishery needs stable stocks. This must be supported by a sustainable, multiannual and cross-species fisheries concept, the implementation of which must be effectively controlled “, explains Kirsten Tackmann, agricultural spokeswoman for DIE LINKE, on the day of the fish on 22 August. Tackmann continues: “It is necessary that the EU Commission has already ordered an immediate catch for the cod in the eastern Baltic Sea. However, it should not be forgotten that it puts employees in fisheries, fish processing and marketing in a difficult social situation. Excessive fishing is just one of the causes, which includes the increasing pollution of the oceans, the onset of climate change and the growing demand for fish products. Fishery workers pay the price for a system that lives at the expense of humans and nature. DIE LINKE therefore demands social compensation. In addition to income support, sustainable fisheries for stock protection, more research for selective fishing methods and consistent action against black fishing are in the interest of all. The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) in May 2019 identified the critical condition for the western herring and eastern cod stocks in made the Baltic Sea very clear and called for a catch for 2020. Even though the causes of the situation are diverse, this voice of science must not be ignored. The seas and their inhabitants are all about us. They provide us with healthy food, raw materials and recreational opportunities. DIE LINKE therefore calls for a socially and ecologically oriented sea fishing on the occasion of the tag of the fish. “
