The future Regulation on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) was once again the focus of ministerial discussions at the Council on 22 and 23 October 2012. At the meeting in Luxembourg Member States’ fisheries ministers reached a partial agreement on how the fund should be used. There was lengthy debate on the Commission’s proposal to put an end to fleet subsidies. In the end, Member States agreed to phase out scrapping aid, with a transition period lasting until 2017. They also agreed to retain temporary cessation aid and engine replacement aid, albeit under strict, limited conditions.

Ministers held a policy debate on the proposal for a regulation on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund. They mainly discussed whether additional measures were necessary to support fishing fleets. Some Member States indicated a wish to keep funding in place to compensate fishermen and shipowners who permanently or temporarily stop fishing activity, or else to finance the replacement of engines. Other Member States expressed their concern that these measures would lead to an increase in fishing capacity, putting a huge strain on fish stocks.
