For healthy and sustainable blue growth
S&D MEPs are working hard to make sure the EU's Common Fisheries Policy can continue to improve sustainability and provide healthy, high-quality food for Europeans. Responsible fishing benefits fishing communities, the environment and our dinner plates.
Our work on fisheries
With a strong lead from the S&Ds, the 2013 CFP reform established new standards for fisheries and imports of fishery products. Our focus is now on putting the reform into practice, including adopting multi-annual management plans, revising technical and control measures, and developing a sustainable 'blue growth' agenda - aimed at creating stable resources within a healthy environment while respecting the economic and social aspects of sustainable development.
