Information on the Total Allowable Catch, or TAC, the system which is part of the Common Fisheries Policy, is presented. As reported, TAC specifies the quantity of each species that each Member State of the European Union (EU) may catch. It is also reported that the system which is designed for conservation, overlooks the fact that fish do not swim in a regimented manner and that fishermen are hard men, struggling to make a living and difficult to supervise.
