The EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) must address increasingly complex fisheries issues. Sustainable management of fisheries resources, response to climate change without compromising the socio- economic opportunities of fishermen with regionalization and simplification of implementation requires structural reforms of fisheries policy and the sector. With EU membership, Croatia has been given the opportunity to significantly increase the amount of support for investment in the fisheries sector with certain legislation adjustments and compliance with the objectives of the CFP. An increase in support and a wider range of measures can help raise the sector's competitiveness, promote sustainable fisheries, improve socio-economic conditions for fishermen and promote blue growth.
