CFP reform not yet a done deal

Several hurdles still remain on the way to effective  reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), says the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations this week.
As negotiators enter the final stretch (which may turn out to be a long haul) the Federation warns that the principle dangers at lie in two areas and they are: the polarisation of the CFP debate into simplistic adversarial politics, especially in the European Parliament, with the danger that subtleties of policy are lost in wild overstatement, respectively the need for the main European institutions, the Commission, the Council and the Parliament to relinquish some of their detailed legislative role in order to secure a more effective CFP .
The Federation adds: "How this inherent rigidity at the centre will articulate with the need for a flexible, responsive and adaptable system for developing relevant fisheries policy, and one which ensures the close involvement of stakeholders at regional level, will determine the fate of fishing within the CFP for the next decade or more.
