Extracts from the joint press conference by Maria Damanaki and Janez Potočnik on the CFP Reform "Another future for fisheries"
The European Commission organised on the 16th of November 2010 a stakeholder conference in order to gather the views and opinions of the wider society, on how it could be shaped the future of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This meeting officially closed the consultation on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy before the Commission started drawing up concrete proposals.
Two Members of the EC and a wide range of stakeholders attended the conference entitled "Another Future for Fisheries", that covered all aspects of the reform from conservation and aquaculture.
The event was hosted by Maria Damanaki, Member of the EC in charge of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, and by Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment.
They gave both a joint press conference after the meeting.
