    EU fishing fleet: balance between capacity and fishing opportunities still distant

    On 31 December 2012 the EU fleet consisted of 76,023 vessels.

    The European Commission's annual report on the European fishing fleet shows some progress towards achieving a balance between capacity and available fishing opportunities. However more remains to be done to ensure that stocks are managed in accordance with the objective of Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) and the Commission considers that there is still a need for active fleet capacity adjustment measures by Member States in order to achieve this.
