Fisheries: EU Presidency programme (July – December)

Reaching a final agreement on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) to be allocated for the period 2014 to 2020 to the implementation of the new Common fisheries policy (CFP), and establishing long-term management plans under the CFP – these are some of the key priorities on the fisheries policy agenda for the new Lithuanian Presidency of the European Union (for the period July – December 2013).
This was made public during the last Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, held in Brussels on 15 July 2013, where the new presidency (inaugurated on 1st July 2013) presented its work programme for agriculture and fisheries.


The Presidency also wants to set the total allowable catches (TACs) and to finalize the allocation of fishing quotas. It specified that a very important criteria on the matter will be to contribute to reaching the goal for an economically and environmentally balanced political agreement on fishing opportunities for 2014 in the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, and other EU and non-EU waters.


Not lastly, it proposes itself to lead the preparation for sustainable fisheries partnership agreements with third countries, but also for coastal states consultations and annual meetings of regional fisheries management organizations within the framework of the external dimension of the Common Fisheries Policy.
