The European Parliament's plenary session endorsed a non-legislative resolution on 25 October 2016 calling for fisheries rules to be applied uniformly to all fishermen in the European Union, so that they are treated fairly.
The resolution specifies that inspection procedures, e.g. for net mesh sizes and catches, should be standardized, as should penalties for infringements. It adds that introducing an EU 'core curriculum' for training all fisheries inspectors, and using compatible real-time communication technologies EU wide, would also help improve fairness.
The fisheries control regime is framed under Regulation No 1224/2009.
