OCEAN2012: Regional governance – making it work for fisheries and the environment
This paper is intended to provide you with a thought-provoking background before the Conference “Regional Fisheries Management – making it work for fisheries and the environment” which took place on September 29th 2009 in Brussels. The organisers’ purpose is to help you:
- Think about the concept of regional fisheries management, particularly in a European Community context;
- Explore potential reforms that might be useful or possible under the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP); and
- Consider the key issues and challenges that may affect the possibilities to take a more regional approach to the management of the European Community’s (EC) fisheries.
