Additional Fish.jpgThe European Union is considering a new law to prohibit people from fishing in EU territorial waters. EU bureaucrats contend that the United Nation’s Human Rights Law should also apply to fish.

The BBC News reports that, “a think tank has made a controversial case for freezing fish in Europe, saying most fish stocks would return to sustainable levels within five years.”

New Economics Foundation, London-based, wrote in its report that the suspension would generate billions of pounds in profits by 2023. The report calls for private investment to compensate fishermen and maintain boats.

According to the BBC, “a senior UK official said stocks were already improving and the idea made no sense.”

The European Parliament already approved measures to reduce fishing in European territorial waters.
