Solution needed for EU’s Fisheries Policy reform

A quick solution is needed in order to move forward the reform of EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), EU's Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki said to the EU governments in the EU Fisheries Council on 22 April 2013.
The reform is currently stuck between the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament over the issues of discards. MEPs stand for a full discard ban on all fish stocks by 2015, but the Council has voted a phased discard ban to be completed by 2017.
Fisheries Commissioner is reported to broadly back the parliament's stance.
The chair of the Fisheries Council, Ireland's minister Simon Coveney, said EU ministers were working in order to reach a deal by the May meeting of the EU Fisheries Council. Moreover, he claimed that there were signals that a compromise could be reached on certain areas.
