CMS – 2nd Meeting of the Range States of the European eel

CCB participated in this important second meeting regarding the eel. The meeting discussed how the CMS instruments could be best used to serve as a relevant addition to existing regulations in the EU and how to potentially improve the chances for protection of the Sargasso Sea itself as a key habitat for both the American eel and the European eel. CCB argued that CMS could be the main instrument for additional measures and certainly add a coordination across borders that currently hardly exists.
