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.
