Fish Stock Conservation: A role for Strategic Fisheries Management Planning 

Part of a series of briefings, written as part of a joint project between English Nature (EN) and the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP),to help inform the debate to the Common Fisheries Policy Review. The papers focus on what environmental integration means in relation to EU fisheries policy, outline the potential benefits for the fisheries sector of strategic management planning and highlight the role of EU fisheries policy in the Mediterranean. They also address how improvements could be made, consider the policy instruments in place to promote good governance in relation to the environment and review issues and options for using taxes and charges.
