MKs from across the board support sweeping reform of fishing industry

Twenty Knesset members from across the political spectrum have voiced their support for a bill calling for major restrictions in the fishing sector, promoted by the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel.

The bill – which aims to limit fishing during breeding season, safeguard species at risk, define protected areas and curb trawling practices – was initiated by Finance Committee chairman Moshe Gafni and Science and Technology Committee chairman Uri Maklev, both from the United Torah Judaism party. Also instrumental in the bill’s formulation were MKs Rachel Azaria (Kulanu) and Tamar Zandberg (Meretz), according to SPNI.
