The 2013 Common Fisheries Policy and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund have greatly improved the regulatory framework regarding overcapacity. They seek to ensure through various reporting, planning and financing measures that fishing capacity is in line with the available fishing opportunities, that this is measured by fleet segment and, if needed, that public aid is made conditional on compliance with these requirements.
This report outlines recommendations for ensuring the system is successful and every actor is able to make use of the instruments and tools available.
