A strong traceability system for all fishery products sold in EU restaurants and shops would help to prevent cases of mislabelling, said MEPs in a resolution approved on Thursday. A sound EU fish labelling policy would in turn boost consumer confidence and the economic development of the EU fishing industry, they added.
MEPs will vote on Parliament's position on the EU's long-term budget for 2014-2020 as well as on tougher economic governance measures during the plenary session of 11-14 March. They will also be deciding where the EP stands on the reform of the EU's agricultural policy and vote on three reports on women's rights. In addition Israeli president Shimon Peres will address Parliament on Tuesday.
