Agreement on external dimension of EU CFP

The European Parliament has subscribed to the Commission's proposal which sets the same sustainable fishing objectives for international as for European waters. On 22 November, the European Parliament plenary session adopted the European Commission's Communication on the external dimension of the Common Fisheries Policy. While pleading for a broadening of the Communication’s scope and an integrated view encompassing European trade and development policies, the EP backs all topics of the Communication, including the elaboration of a 'global catch and traceability documentation scheme' to fight against illicit fishing, strengthening the capability of the regional fisheries management organisations and increasing the contribution from ship owners to the financial compensation paid to the benefiting countries of partnership agreements.
The Council adopted its general approach on this Communication in March 2012, and also globally backed the Commission's policy.
