||SOUNDBITE by Maria Damanaki (in ENGLISH) saying that we have gone throughout a reform of our common fisheries policy; so for the next financial period, we're going to spend the money in a more careful way; we do not want to give money to fish more, but to fish less and earn more; it is possible if we manage the stocks in a sustainable way and if we can have more money from our fish, referring to labelling, better packaging, better use of our products, of our resources.
