Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy - Results of the public consultation

While the consultation for the reform of the EU's agricultural policy are on their way now, a similar procedure has been held on the Common Fisheries Policy at the end of last year.

In preparation of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council that was supposed to take place tomorrow but that seems to be cancelled due to the ash cloud, a summary of the consultations - 394 in total - has been presented by the European Commission on Friday.

And if you've finished reading the 30+ pages of the summary, why not passing by to check how much EU money is spent on fishing in your region?
