On Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013 Officials from the 27 European Union countries approved a proposal on a phased ban on vessels discarding of unwanted fish, but environmentalists are condemning the measure as too weak. The aim is to preserve fish stocks, some of which are dwindling dangerously. (AP Photo/Yves Logghe, File)
