Chapter 13: Fisheries

13) FISHERIES

I. CONTENT OF THE CHAPTER:

Chapter 13-Fisheries acquis provides rules for the conservation of living aquatic resources and management of the fleet capacity; control and enforcement; structural actions for operators in the sector and thus the magament of EU Fisheries Fund; implementation of common marketing standards and common organisation of the market in fisheries and involvement of producer organisations in enforcement of these rules. As it is very important in identification of these rules, specail emphasis is given to assessment of existing fish stocks and collection reliable data on fisheries sector. The acquis consists of regulations, which do not require transposition into national legislation. Therefore, it requires the introduction of measures and mechanisms to prepare the administration and the operators for participation in the common fisheries policy  and to gain experience in implementation before accession. It should be underlined that the recent CFP legislative amendments impose detailed and strict rules  that have to be effectively enforced not only by member states but also by the 3rd countries exporting to EU.
