EU Fisheries management

01-01-2018

Fisheries management under the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is based on the need to ensure environmentally sustainable exploitation of marine biological resources and the long-term viability of the sector. With a view to achieving this objective, the European Union has adopted legislation on access to EU waters, the allocation and use of resources, total allowable catches, fishing effort limitation and technical measures.
