A new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) has been agreed by Council and Parliament and is effective from 1 January 2014.
On 13 July 2011, the European Commission presented its proposals for the reform of the EU common fisheries policy and, on 2 December 2011, it proposed a new fund for the EU's maritime and fisheries policies for the period 2014-2020: the European maritime and fisheries fund (EMFF).
In 2009, the Commission launched a wide-ranging public debate on the way EU fisheries were managed. Its Green paper on reform of the common fisheries policy (CFP) outlined the challenges facing Europe's fisheries. The public consultation elicited very interesting responses from EU citizens, organisations and governments. We analysed these and summarised them in a synthesis report on CFP-reform consultation.
