This submission looks at each of the five structural failings of the current Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), as identified in the European Commission’s Green Paper on the CFP Reform, and provides recommendations as to how to address these failings. The Environmental Pillar has also identified three additional areas that must be fully integrated into the future CFP, being the establishment and protection of Marine Protected Areas, integration of climate change considerations and the full integration of aquaculture into the 2012 CFP.
