Irish Sea

304 views

Europe is surrounded by oceans and seas. The EU has some 70 000 km of coastline. Almost half of all EU citizens live within 50 km of the sea and almost 40% of the EU’s GDP is generated in the maritime regions. In its proposals for a major reform of the EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the European Commission has set out a radical approach to fisheries management in Europe. The plans aim at securing both fish stocks and fishermen's livelihood for the future while putting an end to overfishing and depletion of fish stocks. The reform will introduce a decentralised approach to science-based fisheries management by region and sea basin, and introduce better governance standards in the EU and on the international level through sustainable fisheries agreements. This new package is being submitted to the European Parliament and Council for adoption under the ordinary legislative procedure (co-decision). The Commission aims for adoption and entry into force of the new framework by 1 January 2013. Later this year the Commission plans to put forward a new funding mechanism for fisheries and maritime policy, in line with the Multi-Annual Financial Framework. Irish Sea covers 45,000km and is 300m deep at its deepest point. One of the main features in Irish fishery lately is environment friendly fishing, so to protect fishing stocks but also food-chain and environment. The stock-shots focus on three areas of the Irish Sea: Howth, Skerries and Dundalk Bay. The film is concentrating on the inshore-fishing (crabs and cockles) and white-fishing (prawns).
