In 2009, the Commission launched a wide-ranging public debate on the way EU fisheries are managed. Its Green paper on reform of the common fisheries policy (CFP) outlined the challenges facing Europe's fisheries. The public consultation elicited some very interesting responses from EU citizens, organisations and governments. We analysed these and summarised them in a synthesis report on CFP-reform consultation.
The consultation was closed on 31.12.2009.
In the interests of transparency, organisations have been invited to provide the public with relevant information about themselves by registering in the Interest Representative Register and subscribing to its Code of Conduct. If the organisation is not registered, the submission is published separately from the registered organisations.
