ETF Position on the Reform of the CFP

21 December 2011

On the 13th of July 2011 the European Commission has adopted a package of proposals on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). In its response to the measures proposed by the Commission, the ETF shares the need for a structural reform of the CFP but regrets the lack of attention paid to the economic and social consequences that the proposed developments would have for workers.

The establishment of a system of tradable fishing concessions and the consequent privatisation of fisheries resources are amongst the propositions strongly opposed by the ETF. The paper also puts forward several recommendations, notably on the need to apply the conditionality principle to the CFP, so as to allow only those operators who respect labour and conservation rules to be granted the right to fish and the access to public funds.

Here you will find the ETF Position Paper in English, French, Spanish and Italian.

For additional information regarding the activities of the ETF on the CFP reform, please contact Livia Spera, ETF Political Secretary for Fisheries at l.spera@etf-europe.org.
