Next week (24-25 November) a judicial review hearing at the High Court will see Greenpeace challenge the UK Government over its distribution of fishing quota.

Greenpeace is arguing that the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has failed to implement Article 17 of the EU’s reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), which emphasises transparency and environmental, social and economic criteria in the allocation of fishing quota.
