This study proposes a set of criteria and indicators for the purpose of allocating fishing opportunities in EU Member States, which according to Article 17 of the new CFP should include those of an environmental, social and economic nature.
The proposed criteria and indicators should be applicable in a wide range of circumstances therefore the term allocation in this study should be understood in a broad sense referring to any aspect of giving access to fishing opportunities.
Kim Stobberup presented her study on 31 March at the PECH committee meeting.
This site contains a wealth of information about the work of the Committee on Fisheries, including agendas and other meeting documents, our monthly newsletter Trawler and details of the public hearings we hold. Our home page also provides regular updates about significant events and developments involving the committee.
The focus of our work during the eighth parliamentary term will undoubtedly be the ongoing reform of the common fisheries policy, a process in which Parliament has played an important role over the past few months. Fisheries policy has to reconcile the interests of a wide range of stakeholders, with a view to safeguarding the long-term viability of the marine environment and fish stocks, the livelihoods of fishermen and the future of fisheries-related industries and coastal communities. This new, ambitious policy brings with it many challenges, ones which the EU institutions are determined to meet.
We believe that keeping EU citizens properly informed about the policy-making process can only help us to make better decisions. I am sure that this website will play its part by giving people a clearer insight into our day-to-day activities.
Chair of the Committee on Fisheries
