Abstract

This Regulation lays down the Common Fisheries Policy, which covers conservation, management and exploitation of living aquatic resources, aquaculture, and the processing and marketing of fishery and aquaculture products where such activities are practised on the territory of Member States or in Community waters or by Community fishing vessels or, without prejudice to the primary responsibility of the flag State, nationals of Member States. The Policy aims at adopting uniform measures concerning: (a) conservation, management and exploitation of living aquatic resources; (b) limitation of the environmental impact of fishing; (c) conditions of access to waters and resources; (d) structural policy and the management of the fleet capacity; (e) control and enforcement; (f) aquaculture; (g) common organization of the markets; and (h) international relations. The Regulation is divided into seven Chapters, as follows: (I) Scope and objectives; (II) Conservation and sustainability; (III) Adjustment of fishing capacity; (IV) Rules on access to waters and resources; (V) Community control and enforcement system; (VI) Decision-making and consultation; (VII) Final provisions. In addition, two Annexes, dealing with access to coastal waters of the various Member States, are attached.
