REGIONAL DEPENDENCY ON FISHERIES

10-07-2007

The purpose of the study is to provide the Committee on Fisheries with a clear and detailed analysis of regional dependency on fisheries in the coastal regions of the European Union. The study analyzes and presents statistical data on the regional (NUTS-2 level) role and importance of the fisheries sector and its four sub-sectors – fishing, fish processing, aquaculture and ancillary activities, in terms of creation of income and maintenance of employment, and dependency of the regional economies on the fisheries sector. The study also estimates the role and importance of TAC species for the national and regional fishing fleets.
