The 2013 reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy came into force in January 2014 and included a Landing Obligation (LO) whereby the discarding of quota species is prohibited. This policy will be introduced gradually starting with pelagic fisheries in 2015, extending to demersal fisheries in 2016 with the objective that all fisheries will be included by 2019. The LO will require catches of quota managed species to be landed except in cases where high post catch survival can be demonstrated.
