Atlantic Sea part 1

515 views

European Union 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. The Atlantic Ocean is one of the most important fishing areas of the EU. The Bay of Biscay and the Iberian Coast stretch from Southern Brittany to the South of Portugal are the cradle of Europe's maritime power. Here, there is still an active fishing industry, with local small-scale fishing in the Bay of Biscay, and deep-sea fleets based in Brittany and Galicia.
