Management of fisheries resources and the environment

Maritime Affairs And Fisheries

The common fisheries policy (CFP) aims to guarantee the sustainability of living aquatic resources and environmental protection. To ensure sustainable fishing, the European Union has drawn up multiannual plans to replenish and manage the stocks, as well as specific measures (total allowable catches, limitation of the fishing effort, the prohibition of certain fishing gear, minimum landing sizes, etc.). Finally, it has adopted regulations to protect species not targeted by fisheries (marine mammals, birds and turtles), juveniles and vulnerable fish stocks and sensitive habitats.
