Question for written answer E-001094-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Izaskun Bilbao Barandica (ALDE)

 Subject:  Injecting new blood into the fishing industry
 Answer in writing 
One of the problems encountered in Europe’s fisheries sector is that of generational renewal. Among the reasons for the low level of interest in the profession among young people are the image of the profession, the fact that there is almost no knowledge about the real working conditions offered by the sector and a relationship between vocational training centres and fishing enterprises with room for improvement. As a result, some ships are not able to hire a full crew owing to the lack of trained people. In view of this problem and the very limited use made to date of the resources allocated under the European Fisheries Fund:
1. Is there any study at European level on the scale of this problem and its causes?
2. Does the Commission consider that boosting this renewal process should clearly be an activity eligible for support under the regulation on this Fund?
3. What kind of programmes does the Commission think could best contribute to overcoming this problem?
