If you are coming to the meeting on sustainable fishing in Suffolk, you might like to take a look at the EU’s information page on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Project.
The objectives of the reform are stated as follows:
By bringing fish stocks back to sustainable levels, the new common fisheries policy (CFP) aims to provide EU citizens with a stable, secure and healthy food supply for the long term. It seeks to bring new prosperity to the fishing sector, end dependence on subsidies and create new opportunities for jobs and growth in coastal areas. At the same time, it fosters the industry’s accountability for good stewardship of the seas.
How does the Common Fisheries Policy affect Suffolk? Have a look at the website – http://ec.europa.eu/fisheries/reform/index_en.htm – and come along to the meeting at Dunwich Reading Room at 10.30 on Saturday 21st April.
