European funding for the fisheries sector post-2013?

The 3104th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Luxembourg on 28 June 2011  was informed about a joint declaration of Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania concerning the European funding for the fisheries sector post-2013 (11904/11). These delegations acknowledge the role of European fisheries in providing food safety while ensuring sustainable management of natural resources and its potential to contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy. They pointed out the need for an appropriate funding of the fisheries policy. Furthermore, they consider the need for reform of CFP in order to secure sustainable management of the natural resources but insist on the necessity to keep a sufficient funding available for the support measures of the future CFP. Some specific sectors such as marine or freshwater aquaculture should be supported by such funding. The declaration points out the needs of the "new" member states which were not able to fully benefit from the EU funds available before that date. Six member states (Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Ireland and Portugal) had already submitted to the Commission a common declaration in May 2011 highlighting the importance of the future financial instrument of the PCP.
