Mr Karmenu Vella, Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, met yesterday with a EuropĂȘche delegation representing the long distance fishing fleet in Europe. Both Commissioner Vella and EuropĂȘche valued positively the major improvements made in the external dimension of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), which positions the EU distant-water fishing fleets at the forefront of the world's sustainable fisheries. The sector recalled the importance of adopting more fisheries agreements with 3rd countries which must be linked to trade and regional policies. EuropĂȘche requested further diplomatic pressure on Norway on the issue of snow crabbing and other important fish stocks in the Barents Sea and Svalbard waters.
