What Does The Industry Expect From The CFP Reforms?

With the European Commission (EC) set to reveal its plans tomorrow for a new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), many environmental and fishery groups are having a last minute say on what they expect from the reform.

The Scottish Fisherman's Federation (SFF) is warning that the new CFP proposal must not turn into a ‘wasted opportunity'.

The SFF is looking for greater regional control in the way fisheries are managed and, although it agrees with a discard reduction, it says that the CFP should give a new regional dimension to discard management.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) says that the reform is a rare opportunity to fix Europe's broken fisheries system and help deliver healthy fish stocks and thriving coastal communities.

WWF says there are three main changes it expects to see: sustainable management, effective regionalisation and fair fishing abroad.

Seafish, the UK authority on seafood, is hoping the UK seafood industry will have flexibility to operate sustainably and profitably within the EC's plans for a new CFP.
