The European Commission regrets that, despite substantial progress, Parliament and Council could not agree on the few outstanding issues at yesterday's trialogue on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

The recent agreement of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) cements the obligation to land all catches into EU law.

Commissioner Damanaki presents Common Fisheries Policy Reform in Estonia

Press release - 2/5/2012

European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki, will be in Tallin, Estonia, on May 3, 2012 to discuss the on-going reform of the Common Fisheries Policy with the Estonian government.

The Commissioner will participate in a meeting with the Estonian Parliamentary Committee for Agriculture and Fisheries on the topic of CFP Reform. Ms Damanaki will also have a bilateral meeting with Ms Keit Pentus, Estonian Minister for Environment, responsible for natural resources management. The new EU fisheries policy will aim at preserving fish stocks at sustainable levels for the benefit of current and future generations by managing fisheries in a responsible, science-based way. Regionalisation of the policy making is an important aspect of the reform and Commissioner Damanaki will put emphasis on finding solutions for the Baltic Sea during her visit.
