This chapter discusses the roots of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). It outlines the various actors, interests, and processes involved in the formulation, adoption, and development of the CFP. The history of the CFP falls fairly naturally into five periods: the years 1957-73 (covering the conception, birth, and early development of the CFP); 1973-83 (the adoption of an EC system of fisheries management in response to major changes in the international law of the sea); 1983-92 (the challenge of Iberian accession and the consolidation of the EC's fisheries management system); 1993-2002 (the second decade of the fisheries management system); and the period since 2002, which has seen major reform of the CFP and an almost doubling of the EC's membership. Each of these five periods will be looked at in turn.
