On July 1, 2013, Croatia ascended into the European Union (EU) and became its 28th member state. With EU ascension, a country has to integrate the EU’s policy structure into its own to meet the requirements of membership. This thesis will examine the ascension of Croatia into the EU and how they will integrate the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) within their own policy infrastructure. This topic is important to address because their seas have been heavily exploited by bordering countries, Italy and Slovenia, who can freely go into their waters and exploit their marine resources. Not only does this affect the sustainable rates of fish in the Adriatic Sea, but this also concerns the local fishing communities which depend on this industry to survive. The outcome of this issue is predictable like other environmental crisis: if people keep on exploiting fish above sustainable rates, the depletion of entire fish stocks is inevitable. But, in the case of Croatia, the actions executed by the present generation can alter the future. Based on interviews and research from the Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation, this thesis will observe the problems based between the fishermen level, the state level and the international level. With these observations, this thesis will provide a detailed recommendation on how to alleviate the problems observed between each level using various theories.
