On the 19th through the 21st of September 2013, I had the pleasure of being a host of a very interesting event, which took place in Gdansk and Sopot.
The EU multiannual plan for managing Baltic Sea cod, sprat and herring stocks was approved in plenary on Thursday. This is the first new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) regional plan that takes account of interactions between species. It aims to ensure the sustainability of fisheries and offer fishermen better economic conditions in the long run. Parliament and Council negotiators reached an informal agreement on it in March.
After the scoping exercise came to an end, EU has now to take the important decision on the next step, namely when and under which conditions we shall begin our trade negotiations with Japan The main purpose of the workshop is to offer a possibility for a free exchange of views between MEPs and stakeholders on this issue.
