An international conference on THE EXTERNAL DIMENSION OF THE COMMON FISHERIES POLICY

A conference focusing on the external dimension of the common fisheries policy was held within the framework of the FarFish project in beginning of June 2021. The aim of the conference was to review the implementation of the External Dimension of the CFP and to provide recommendations ahead of the next revision of the CFP.

The conference was attended by high-level experts and key stakeholders from the fishing industry and NGO sectors, together with relevant policy makers, scientists and academics, which contributed to discussions on the importance, advantages and challenges of the EU role in international fisheries management and ocean governance.

The conference spanned over two days, with the first day consisting of presentations and panel discussions from high-level experts; and the second day was more in the form of a workshop where different experts and stakeholders “dug deep” into how to improve management under fisheries agreements.

Recordings from the conference are now available on the FarFish website, along with a summary leaflet and main conclusions from day 1 and day 2.
