Fishermen outraged at sardine quota of 10,799 tonnes

Fishermen in Spain and Portugal have expressed indignation at a proposed sardine quota of 10,799 tonnes this year.

The limits were proposed by Lisbon and Madrid and are set to be accepted by Brussels. But fishermen in Portugal have said they are “outraged and appalled” and argue the quotas are insufficient to guarantee minimum conditions for survival.
