Applicants: Coopérative des artisans pêcheurs associés (CAPA) (Le Tréport, France) and 10 other applicants (represented by: M. Le Berre, lawyer)

Defendant: European Commission

Form of order sought

The applicants claim that the Court should:

annul Commission Decision C(2019)5498 final of 26 July 2019;

order the Commission to pay the costs.

Pleas in law and main arguments

In support of the action, the applicants rely on two pleas in law.

First plea in law, alleging infringement of the parties’ procedural rights under Article 108(2) TFEU, in that the circumstances in which the contested decision was adopted and the content thereof demonstrate that the Commission was objectively faced with doubts that should have resulted in the formal investigation procedure being opened.

Second plea in law, based on infringement of the obligation to state reasons.
