As part of the budget framework for the 2021-2027 period, the European Union has adopted new rules on funding dedicated to the Common Fisheries Policy and the Integrated Maritime Policy. Based on a Commission proposal of June 2018, Parliament adopted its first reading position in April 2019. After lengthy interinstitutional negotiations, started after the 2019 elections, political agreement was reached on 4 December 2020. Compared to the previous period, the new fund gives Member States more flexibility ...

During the July plenary session, Parliament is due to vote at second reading on the text agreed with Council on the 2021 2027 European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). With a budget of about €6 billion, it is the main financial tool in support of the common fisheries policy. Compared with the Commission proposal, the co legislators have extended fleet aid to vessels from 12 to 24 metres in length, but under strict conditions.

Marine resources are a vital and growing source of food for human consumption, while oceans also play an important role in climate regulation. Scientific evidence shows that the climate system has changed rapidly in recent decades, with the oceans greatly mitigating the effects of climate change by absorbing excess heat and human-made carbon emissions. The velocity of the effects of climate change leaves little room for adaptation, causing both declines in abundance and geographic shifts in fish ...

Está previsto que en el período parcial de sesiones de noviembre I el Parlamento vote sobre la aprobación de un acuerdo provisional con el Consejo que permita prever apoyo financiero para la paralización definitiva de las actividades pesqueras en el marco del Fondo Europeo Marítimo y de Pesca para determinadas pesquerías del mar Báltico. El texto acordado amplía el ámbito de aplicación de la propuesta de la Comisión para incluir no solo a los pescadores afectados por la veda del bacalao del Báltico ...

The European Union has sole responsibility for the conservation of its marine fisheries resources, and manages them under the common fisheries policy (CFP). Launched in 1983 and reformed every ten years since then, the CFP has come a long way. The current framework, resulting from the 2013 CFP reform, is aimed at ensuring that EU fisheries are sustainable – environmentally, economically and socially. The CFP has a dedicated financial instrument – the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) – ...

The 2021-2027 European Maritime and Fisheries Fund is the major financial tool supporting the EU common fisheries policy (CFP). The new EMFF is focused “on evolution rather than radical changes” - and is supposed to be simpler and more flexible for the stakeholders involved. The notes on quality, research and analysis of the impact assessment concluded that the range of options, the scope and analysis of impacts, and the stakeholder consultation seem to be not always in line with the Better Regulation ...

The 1992 UN Conference on the Environment and Development marked a major step forward for the conservation of biodiversity and the protection of nature thanks to the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity. In 2011 the EU committed itself to halting the loss of biodiversity and the degradation of ecosystem services in the EU by 2020. Other objectives set out in the Habitats Directive or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) remain to ...

One dimension of the EU common fisheries policy consists of managing the European fishing fleet and its overall fishing capacity. Rules on the conservation of fisheries resources may vary depending on the features of fishing vessels. During its April I plenary, the Parliament is expected to vote at first reading on a proposal to recast the rules regarding technical characteristics of fishing vessels.

The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) covers all aspects of the fishing industry. The EU has exclusive responsibility for the sustainable exploitation of living marine resources, which is subject to rules stating how, where and when different species can be caught in order, above all, to protect juveniles and marine habitats that are vulnerable to certain fishing techniques. A system of total allowable catches, divided into quotas for each Member State, rules, for many fish stocks, just how many fish ...
