Producer organisations and the Common Market Organisation in fisheries products

01-01-2018

The Common Market Organisation (CMO) in fisheries and aquaculture products was the first component of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Its scope for action in the face of the recent crisis in the fisheries sector was seen as limited, given the nature of its intervention mechanisms and the scarce funding allocated to them, leading to a comprehensive reform laying down the new groundwork for the CMO and the entire CFP as of 2014. The revised CMO improves market surveillance and food safety and consumer information, fostering the development of regional product commercialisation.
