Multiple objectives in the management of EU fisheries

Objective

OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), defined originally under Article 38 of the "Treaty Establishing the European Community" (or Treaty of Rome), embodies several objectives for the management of fisheries in EU waters:
(i) to increase production by promoting technical progress;
(ii) to ensure a fair standard of living for the agricultural community, in particular by increasing the incomes of persons engaged in the industry;
(iii) to stabilise markets;
(iv) to ensure availability of supplies; and
(v) to ensure that supplies reach consumers at reasonable prices.

In order to achieve these objectives, the CFP has four key areas: a common market organisation, a common structural policy, a resource conservation and management system and an external policy concerned with agreements with countries outside the EU.
