EU: Common Fisheries Policy (CFP)

The Eurpean Union’s common fisheries policy (CFP) is the point where dwindling fish stocks, oversized fishing fleets and undersized fishing revenue clash.

Eur-Lex is the web portal for legal information about the European Union. In addition to treaties, secondary legislation, preparatory acts, procedure tracking and other factual information, Eur-Lex runs a service called Thematic files.

The Thematic files collect the most relevant legal acts, preparatory acts and other acts of a specified policy area, and group them together for interested users, without further comment.

A short while ago, we signaled the new thematic file on Human rights. The latest addition is The common fisheries policy (CPT), dated 13 May 2009.

The available thematic files are found here.
