Voluminous CFP diagnosis report now available at CFP-reformwatch.eu

The Commission staff working document A Diagnosis of the Common Fisheries Policy, informally called the “Frankenstein” report, is now available at this website. The Commission has expressed the intention to publish the report but has not yet done so.

The introduction states that this document is the result of a Commission internal working group tasked with analyzing and diagnosing both the status of EU fisheries and the performance of the various policy instruments in the CFP. The Commission writes in the introduction that the document is indended only to back up and clarify the  Green Paper, and should be considered as a technical annex which can serve as a reference.  Specifically it is for the use of the participants in the consultation and public debate on the Green Paper.

The report has has 20 chapters. For size reasons, the report is split into the different chapters.
