After the vote by the European Parliament at the plenary session on 23 October on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF), the doors are open to start negotiations between the co-legislators on this dossier. The Lithuanian EU Council Presidency begins informal trilogues with the European Parliament and the Commission in November seeking to reach political agreement on this regulation by the end of the year. EMFF is a key instrument to finance the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) as of 2014.

„We were anxiously waiting for the vote of the European Parliament. The Council is ready to engage into negotiations, so that the regulation to secure funding for fisheries sector in the next years is be approved as soon as possible,“ Prof. Vigilijus Jukna, Lithuanian Minister of Agriculture and Chair of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council noted.

The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund for 2014–2020 will replace the 2007–2013 European Fisheries Fund and other current financial measures for fisheries control, data collection and development of an Integrated Maritime Policy. The Council agreed its general approach on the EMFF on 15 July 2013.
