EU laws, the Marine Directive and the Common Fisheries Policy, have a clear deadline of 2020 to end overfishing and protect EU seas, however member states are ignoring these laws. The petition was started in October 2017 to enable the public to show their support for action from EU Environment and Fisheries Ministers.
