Fisheries committee MEPs on Monday 7 April formally approved the legislative text of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) ahead of the plenary vote next week.
The political agreement on the EMFF was reached on 28 January. The legislative text adopted by fisheries MEPs today – with 16 votes in favour, 2 against and 0 abstentions – is the result of several weeks of technical and linguistic reviews.
Plenary will adopt the Regulation on 16 April, putting an end to the reform package of the CFP and two years of intense negotiations.
