Resource summary

common fisheries policy
1 The CFP was first introduced in the 1970s and went through successive updates, the most recent of which took effect on 1 January 2014.
2 The CFP is a set of rules for managing European fishing fleets and for conserving fish stocks.
3 In theory this access is supposed to be equal, but in practice it is not: the EU manages access to fishing waters and determines how many fish a national fleet can catch.
4 Employment in the fishing industry has declined dramatically, particularly in the UK, and fish stocks continue to fall despite recent reforms
5 Fisheries are a natural and mobile resource and are thus, by nature, common property
5.1 The CFP protects the environment and improves fish stocks by placing limits on how many fish can be caught.
5.1.1 The restructuring of the fishing industry in the EU has ensured fairer prices for efficient European fishermen
5.1.1.1 ARGUMENT FOR
6 The willingness of national administrations to enforce the policy varies widely making it an inconsistent and ineffective policy
6.1 The damage to the environment has been increased rather than decreased due to CFP measures, which waste natural resources
6.1.1 ARGUMENT AGAINST
6.2 Through the practice of dumping catches that do not conform to the TAC species quotas, fish stocks have continued to decrease.
7 In 2008, as a result of stock recovery, North Sea cod catches were increased by 11%.
