European Commission - Fisheries - The Common Fisheries
Policy (CFP) is the European Union's instrument for the management
of fisheries and aquaculture. It was created to manage a common
resource and to meet the obligation set in the original Treaties of
the then European Community. Because fish are a natural and mobile
resource they are considered as common property. In addition, the
Treaties which created the Community stated that there should be a
common policy in this area, that is, common rules adopted at EU
level and implemented in all Member States.

Fishing Rights Owners - Sweden
This is an association working on behalf of hundreds of thousands of
people who own fishing rights in Sweden. Half of Sweden´s almost two

as are municipalities, companies, the church and private persons.
Each fishery conservation area has
anything from just a few to several thousand owners. Fishing rights
can be owned by private persons, companies, municipalities, the
church or the government. Fishing rights are frequently collective,
with several properties sharing the same fishing water.
More than 9% of Sweden is made up of lakes. More than nine percent
of the surface of Sweden is made up of lakes. To this we can add the
Swedish coastline with its myriad islands and all the brooks,
streams and rivers that criss-cross the country.
Private fishing rights occur in all lakes, waterways and along the
coastline. Fishing rights in Sweden are connected to properties.

frequently remained collective and undivided and so fishing rights
can be either collective or divided.
Divided fishing rights mean that fishing within a certain area
belongs to a single property. Private fishing rights exits in all
Swedish lakes and waterways and along our coasts. In the five
largest lakes and along the coastline anyone can fish anywhere
outside the boundaries of fishing rights belonging to private
