OCEAN2012: Subsidies public funds for public services

OCEAN2012 would like the reformed CFP to:
  • stop aid which contributes to maintaining or even increasing overcapacities, in particular all aid for the modernisation of vessels;
  • stop public aid for access to fish resources;
  • use money towards the creation of public goods, such as research, improved control and enforcement and the cooperation between fishermen and scientists as well as greater stakeholder involvement; and
  • make information on fisheries subsidies transparent and accessible.
