Evaluation of EU Commission Consultation on Fishing Opportunities for 2015 under the Common Fisheries Policy

The Ecologic Institute analysed stakeholder submissions to the European Commission's public consultation on fishing opportunities for 2015. The consultation generated widespread interest from a range of stakeholders: the fishing sector, public authorities, scientists, fisheries advisory councils, citizens and NGOs. The evaluation demonstrates that stakeholders are concerned by overfishing and that most of them have a good understanding of the issues at stake, including of the objective to recover fish stocks to levels above those capable of producing the maximum sustainable yield (MSY).

In broader perspective, concerns are about establishing a constitutional practice which could in fact circumvent the possibility of adopting implementing acts by qualified majority vote. This could alter the balance of power between the EU institutions. In this discussion paper, the Ecologic Institute discusses the role and mandate of the European Council. It's available for dowonload.Read more
