Who should have the right to fish?

A policy paper from the Greens in the European Parliament

Marine resources are a public good, not a private resource. The right to exploit those resources, therefore, should be allocated according to criteria that ensure that fishing contributes as far as possible to the public interest. Greens think that the right to fish should be based on environmental and social criteria.
