EU fisheries fund: Skewed prayoridad para fisheries pagpopondo sa logro sa CFP reporma sabihin Greens




b2fa64af-1d7f-49c7-96f5-b290d7f58b5f-300x236Ang European Parliament ngayon (23 Oktubre) ay bumoto sa isang iminungkahing programa sa pagpopondo para sa mga pangisdaan sa EU para sa 2014-20, na bahagi ng Pangkalahatang Patakaran sa Fisheries.

Nagpahayag ang pag-aalala ng mga Gulay na ang boto sa European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) ay nagbabanta sa kamakailang napagkasunduang reporma sa Patakaran sa Fisheries. Pagkomento matapos ang boto, tagapagsalita ng Green Fisheries Raül Romeva at Rueda said: “MEPs have today voted for a fisheries fund that is at odds with the goals of the recently-agreed reform of the Common Fisheries Policy. Instead of voting to end the use of public funds to subsidise overfishing and the over-exploitation of fish stocks, they have voted to give EU funds to practises that are in direct conflict with the goal of more sustainable fisheries.

“Of particular concern are proposals to reintroduce subsidies for funding for engine replacement and grants for purchasing boats for young fishermen. This would essentially subsidise an increase in fishing capacity in the EU: a totally wrongheaded approach at a time when the CFP is looking to reduce, not increase, fishing capacity.

“Thankfully, MEPs at least rejected proposals to reintroduce subsidies for new fishing vessels. One important improvement is the adoption of Green proposals to increase funding for research and control and to enable oversight by the Commission on how member states disburse these crucial funds for EU fisheries.

“The EMFF only has limited resources, and it is more essential than ever to ensure that these public funds are spent efficiently. Taxpayers’ money should only support activities that increase the sustainability of fisheries and prioritise the recovery of depleted fish stocks, so as to ensure that coastal fishing communities have a future. We can only hope that this will be corrected before the legislation is finalised.”
