Abstract: DG Fisheries And Maritime Affairs is the Directorate-General responsible for the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and for developing a future maritime policy for the EU at the European Commission. The CFP covers all fishing activities, the farming of living aquatic resources, and the processing and marketing of fisheries products, on the legal basis of Article 33 (ex 39) of the Treaty establishing the European Community. Since the first decisions adopted in 1970, the CFP has been through many changes, and its current form centres on four main areas: the conservation and management of marine resources, fisheries relations and agreements with non-member countries and international organisations, structural measures, and the common market organisation for fishery and aquaculture products. The major challenge facing the CFP today is to strike a sustainable balance between available marine resources and their exploitation. [Information of the supplier]
