Today fishery is a sector in crisis. Since several years, European authorities note that the fishing stocks in the European seas are in bad conditions.The reformed common fisheries policy, an agreement originated in 1983, has since undergone two big reforms.
Now it needs to be reviewed to meet the workers’ demands better, but also the consumers’ needs. The European objectives are, according to the Irish Minister of agriculture, to "maintain the sector, to enforce a better management of stocks whilst targeting jobs creation."
Vote at the EU parliament is due after debates at the commission on February, 5th. The final agreement is in turn scheduled for next june.
