A United, Open and Stronger Europe – European Commission "2010-2014 Record of Achievement"
(05/05/2014) The European Commission has published a snapshot of some of the main achievements that it has delivered for citizens and businesses across Europe over the last five years.
In fisheries, the past five years have been crucial. During this time we have helped triple the number of healthy fish stocks in Europe while at the same time putting in place a historic reform of the Common Fisheries Policy which came into effect as of 2014. The core of this policy is sustainability and ensuring that we have more fish in the sea and on our plate, while guaranteeing more income for our fishermen and fish farmers. Also, we have now turned our seas and our blue economy into a source of growth and prosperity.
