Our work on the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) spans decades and covers a range of issues placing the sustainability of fish stocks and the protection of marine habitats and species at the centre of policy development.

Our breadth of expertise covers topics that include fisheries subsidies, the ecosystem approach to fisheries management, integrating biodiversity and climate concerns into the CFP, indicators of sustainable fisheries, smarter governance structures, rights-based fisheries management, as well as inshore and inland fisheries.

IEEP also published ‘El Anzuelo’, our bi-annual fisheries newsletter until January 2012. Its aim was to increase awareness of the fisheries and environment debate in Europe and to provide a platform for discussion, highlighting developments in EU fisheries policy with an emphasis on environmental aspects. Regrettably we had to stop production due to resource constraints, but the archive remains accessible.
