Cyprus Presidency reaches its basic target on fisheries

EU Fisheries Ministers took another firm step towards the Common Fisheries policy (CFP) reform today, as they reached a partial general approach for the Legislative proposal for the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) 2014-2020. Taking into account the agreement during the first day of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council on fishing opportunities in the Baltic Sea in 2013, the results of the Council in the fisheries sector are evaluated as being very positive.
The compromise text by the Presidency is thought to have significantly contributed to achieving the partial general approach, which is a partial agreement reached on a legislative act prior to the outcome of the debate on the financial perspective, for the Commission’s proposal on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.  An agreement was reached on a major part of the EMFF proposal after intensive but productive discussions on the outstanding issues an agreement has been reached on the major part of the EMFF proposal. The discussion focused among others on the main outstanding issues, related to the measures for restructuring of the fleet and market measures, such as processing and storage aid.  The agreement on the Fisheries Fund includes all the measures and acts that are necessary for a successful, reformed new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
