MEPs in fishing sustainability call

According to most recent updates, MEPs said in a recently passed resolution that Common fisheries policy reform must ensure that stocks are exploited sustainably. Moreover, they stressed the policy must regard fishermen creating jobs for coastal communities and provide secure food supplies for EU citizens.
The Parliament called on the Commission and the Council to resolve current deadlock among Member States over the long-term management plans, such as that for the western stock of Atlantic horse mackerel, which has been blocked in the Council since November 2010.
MEPs said long-term management plans should apply to as many fish stocks as possible and must be decided jointly by the Parliament and the Council, under the ordinary legislative procedure.
