On 30 May, the European Parliament and the EU Member States reached agreement on the main issues in the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
One last regulation remains in the fisheries reform package: that governing the money. The fisheries committee in the European Parliament will vote on 10 July 2013 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).
Fish For the Future is a cross-party group of MEPs who want to end overfishing and rebuild fish stocks. We want public money to be used to help all fishermen – for example by improving data collection, supporting the transition to more selective fishing, and supporting fisheries dependent communities by adding more value to fisheries and by diversifying their activities into other maritime sectors. We do not want public money to be used to build new fishing vessels or other measures that increase fishing capacity.
