The CFP Reform Watch website was founded in 2010 by the green members of the Fisheries Committee in the European Parliament during the 2009–2014 legislature: Isabella Lövin, Raül Romeva i Rueda, Jean-Paul Besset and Rebecca Harms.
The aim of the site has been to provide simple access to information on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) which took place during the 2009–2014 legislature, in order to facilitate news reporting and extend stakeholder involvement. The website has set out to ensure a transparent and open CFP reform process by publishing relevant key information, publications and positions.
While the fisheries reform was concluded with the adoption of the basic regulation and market regulation in 2013 and the adoption of the maritime and fisheries fund in 2014, CFP Reform Watch will continue to exist as an open archive to the reform process and as a news site about EU fisheries policy and the implementation of the reformed CFP.
