The EU Fisheries Minister and the EU Parliament have agreed on policy change in the Common Fisheries Policy in Brussels.
The Directorate General Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in the European Commission acts as driving force of a sustainable European fisheries Policy.
Through the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), the European Union regulates fisheries for the sustainable use of fishermen and consumers.
The common organisation of the markets in fisheries and aquaculture products is an important pillar of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
Aquaculture is the breeding of fish, mussels and water plants like algi.
