Fishing Subsidies: Achievements
Thanks to Oceana, the European Court of Justice forced Italy to reimburse €7M it received in subsidies for the conversion or decommissioning of its fleet. Oceana proved that the fleet was never converted or decommissioned and that the funds were used to increase the fishing efforts.
Oceana reported various vessels for illegal fishing, one of the activities that most seriously damages sustainable fishing.
