In April 1997, the Council of the European Union (EU)
initiated a debate about Community fishing agreements
(CFAs). In its conclusions, the Council invited "the
Commission to undertake an analysis of the costs and
benefits of fishing agreements with the Community". The
overall aim is to provide pertinent information to the
European institutions. This presentation gives a summary of process.
