THESE ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF THE SAVE BRITAIN'S FISH CAMPAIGN.

OBJECTIVE 1.

To analyse and thereafter inform fishermen, MP's and the British People of the past and present facts relative to the CFP and the potential implications for the Industry in the future as a result of the strategy developed at the Fish Council Meeting in December 1992.

OBJECTIVE 2.

To apply political pressure for change.

OBJECTIVE 3.

To gain security for British fishermen by withdrawing from the CFP and regaining control of the UK's exclusive fishing zone to enable as appropriate reciprocal fisheries arrangements to be negotiated where possible.

Success in the Campaign will ensure that the UK no longer has to abide by the principle of equal access to the common resource nor to the acceptance of majority voting at Fish Council Meetings. Both of these make it virtually impossible for any UK Government of any party to safeguard the future of the British Fishing Industry. Eighty percent (80%) of fish resources are found in what ought to be UK waters, but are now European Union waters. The UK industry has only 38% allocation of that resource (and 12% by value) which is being continuously eroded by other Member States insisting on application of the non discrimination principle enshrined in the Treaty of Rome (Article 7 and Article 40(3)). Non discrimination means equal access to the common resource.
