Fishery policy reform at centre of European Fish Week

During the second annual European Fish Week (June 4th - 12th 2011), more than 40 events throughout Europe and one in Africa engage the public in calling for an effective reform of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This collective action coincides with World Oceans Day on June 8 and the anticipated publication of the European Commission's proposal for a reformed CFP in mid-July. Most EU fish stocks are now overfished, many of them below safe biological limits. It was not always like this. In the recent past, stocks were healthier and fishing communities were wealthier, with more fish, boats, fishers and communities dependent on fisheries in Europe.
