‘‘Getting It Right’’: The Birth of a New EU Common Fishery Policy? – Legislative and Legal Perspectives on the Annulling of the ‘‘Five Structural Failings’’
This lex ferenda article examines EU efforts to change the criticized and now-repealed 2002 ‘‘topdown’’ management regulation with its discard system, vessel decommissioning, fishing effort management, and quota allocations. The 2013 regulation’s objective is to remedy the Common Fisheries Policy’s ‘‘five structural failings.’’ Unfortunately, the new regulations have failed to
improve the situation. Political obstruction, lax enforcement, transitional costs, and the weight of the status quo hamper future amendments.
