Maritime Affairs And Fisheries

The European Union Member States have to share an extremely mobile and often overtapped resource. The survival of the fisheries sector requires the implementation of common rules beyond Community waters. For this reason, on behalf of the European Union, the European Commission negotiates bilateral fisheries agreements with third countries, participates in various regional fisheries organisations (RFOs) and contributes to drawing up international agreements.
For that matter, the adoption of the Community fisheries laws by applicant countries is a prerequisite for the success of their EU membership process.
