Amendments endorsing legal obligations to end discards and to manage fish stocks above sustainable levels, as well as amendments that call for more regionalised decision-making were adopted by comfortable majorities.

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.

The reform of the EU's fisheries policy is making progress: in its two resolutions adopted on 12 September 2012, the European Parliament endorsed the Commission's call for a thorough and ambitious reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) to ensure long-term environmental sustainability and to secure economic and social viability. In June, the Council of Ministers agreed on a joint approach to the reform, in which the Fisheries Ministers also confirmed the commitment to sustainability as the guiding objective for the policy. In January 2013, the European Parliament will adopt its position. We hope that it will be at least as ambitious as the position of the Member States.

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.
