image of Fisheries Issues in WTO and ACPEU Trade Negotiations
Three papers presented at a meeting of African, Caribbean and Pacific Fisheries and Trade experts in April 2003. The meeting’s primary concerns were the future of relations between the ACP and the EU, and preparing ACP countries for Economic Partnership Agreement negotiations.



The first paper, ‘The Future of European UnionACP Fisheries Relations’, looks at the increasingly complex ACP/EU relationship. The second, ‘WTO Fisheries Subsidies Negotiations: Implications for Fisheries Access Arrangements and Sustainable Management’, outlines a possible fisheries framework agreement. The third paper, ‘Elements of an ACPEU Framework Agreement on Fisheries Arrangements’, looks at the WTO fisheries subsidies negotiations, considers the impact they will have on developing countries and suggests riskmitigation strategies.

The Shaping of Europe's Revised Fishing Policy

In December 2002 the Council of Fisheries Ministers met and took the first decisions on the internal aspects of the reform of the CFP. Their discussions and decisions show how the EU intends to address the challenges identified during the ‘Green Paper’ process. These include substantial fleet over-capacity, coupled with the near collapse of several important fish stocks, and an increasing supply deficit on the EU market for fisheries products.
