Second DSCC email bulletin to Members of the European Parliament: Your Legacy, vote tomorrow to protect the Deep Sea

Your Legacy? Protecting the Deep Sea

 A bulletin for Members of the European Parliament from the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition of over 70 non-governmental organizations, fishers’ organizations and law and policy institutes committed to protecting the deep sea.

The previous edition of this bulletin with background to the vote can be found here.
