Dolphin Bycatch off Brittany and the West of France

I haven’t been able to find out yet what was decided at Friday’s virtual roundtable discussion on preventing bycatch of common dolphins and harbour porpoises in fisheries hosted by the EU Fisheries Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius. Hopefully, I will receive news soon from Change.org or, alternatively, cetacean watchers and conservationists can post information in the form of a comment on this post.

The following shows the extent of the problem in the waters off Brittany and the neighbouring part of France:
