EU's Fisheries Control Agency adopts work programme 2011-2015
The Community Fisheries Control Agency (CFCA) based in Vigo, Spain, has adopted its multiannual work programme for 2011-2015 as well as the annual work programme and budget for 2011.
The CFCA works in close cooperation with the European Commission and Member States, to ensure compliance with the rules of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy, in particular the new fisheries control regime which entered into force this year (IUU and Control Regulations).
In the coming years, the Agency will continue to undertake its activities around its two main strategic axes: Operational Coordination of fisheries controls and inspections, through joint deployment plans (JDP) for different fish species and areas, and Capacity Building, focusing on helping Member States develop systems for effectively sharing and collecting data and intelligence.
