Promoting the EU’s fisheries principles beyond our waters

The European Union’s vessels fish in every sea in the world. As part of this reform, the European Commission reiterates its commitment to promote actively around the world the principles it defends in EU waters, namely sustainable exploitation of fishery resources and respect for ecosystems. With that aim in view, the Commission proposes to act through international bodies, regional fisheries management organisations and partnership agreements with non-EU countries.

The principles of sustainability, ecosystem-based management and maximum sustainable yield applied in Europe should also be the rule at global level. The Commission therefore proposes to give the EU the means to enhance its international action. In practical terms, governance of high-seas fisheries takes place at three levels.
