Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - The common organisation of the market in fisheries products is intended to ensure stability in the market and security of income for those involved in the sector. These aims and, indeed, the aims set out in the EC Treaty are worthy and should have led to prosperity in Europe’s fishing communities. Unfortunately the past two and a half decades of centralised Brussels control in the form of the CFP have been disastrous for those communities. A thriving market with job security is not achievable within the context of the CFP and control of fisheries management must be returned to the nations dependent on fisheries.
