Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
The PECH Committee of the European Parliament published a study on "EU fisheries policy - latest developments and future challenges" prepared by consultants. The study examines the latest developments of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in the fields of fisheries management, Common Market Organisation (CMO) and its external dimension. Through the medium of ten case studies it discusses the potential challenges that the EU fisheries policy will face in the near future. It notes the limited success of the landing obligation in reducing discards, ongoing challenges of achieving the MSY management targets in multi-species fisheries, the potential for new monitoring technologies, and the historical failure of management in the Mediterranean Sea. Importantly, it also recognises that the EU's Relative Stability quota allocation keys do not adapt to changes in fish distributions, especially those driven by climate change, leading to conflicts and suboptimal exploitation of resources. It therefore recommends that there is a compelling need to define new and better ways to share fishing opportunities. .
