". In the first four years of MAGP IV (1997-2001) the Community fleet was reduced by 2.5% in terms of tonnage and 5.9% in terms of power. Despite the fact, however, that the targets set in MAGP IV are already relatively modest, some Member States have not managed to achieve them and others have even increased their capacity. In other words, this report demonstrates the perennial problem: some Member States, such as my own, have met the targets that were set, whilst others have not. Worse still, these countries have not been penalised in any way for failing to meet their targets. At a time when we will very shortly be seeing the European Commission’s proposals for the future of the common fisheries policy, it is becoming crucial to rethink the MAGPs, because the issue of stock conservation will continue to be one of the fundamental aspects of the CFP, since without fish, there can be no future for fishermen. It must be stated, however, that all Member States – and not just some of them – will have to contribute to achieving this objective. This is why the MAGPs – or other measures that have a similar effect – still have a role to play in the common fisheries policy, as long as they contain a minimally effective system of sanctions. Unless this happens, this or any other system seeking to match the size of the fleet to existing resources will be condemned to failure."@en1
