EU fisheries chief calls for 'drastic' changes to CFP

The commission's fisheries director general has said that EU's future common fisheries policy (CFP) will be "drastically different" following upcoming reforms. Speaking in parliament, Fokion Fotiadis said the reform of the CFP would result in "significant" changes to fisheries policy. He also said that EU fisheries and maritime affairs commissioner Maria Damanaki "accepts that CFP reform is the single most important issue that will define her career". "The current policy is weak and does not work properly," he said. "In fact, the problems are so profound that a CFP can continue only if there is an in-depth reform. That means everything is up for review. "If we just continue as we are there will not be much of a future for the fishing industry.
