Ner, Magnor. (2004) The New Common Fisheries Policy (CFP): Towards Sustainable Management and a Profitable Fisheries Sector? EPIAScope, 2004 (1). pp. 30-35.
The new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) entered into force on 1 January 2003 and has four main elements: 1. Long-term sustainable management approach; 2. A new policy for the fleets, balancing fishing capacity and available resources; 3. Better application and enforcement of rules; 4. Improving stakeholders’ involvement. The framework Regulation is in place, but several main elements are still to be decided and others have not yet been presented in a final draft. The article seeks to provide an overview of the implementation of the new CFP. After a description of the main elements and the achievements so far, unfinished business and major challenges ahead will be analysed – with particular emphasis on the economic dimension.
