Aquaculture in the EU

03-10-2017

Aquaculture means the rearing of aquatic animals and the cultivation of aquatic plants and algae. While, at global level, this industry has undergone significant growth for several decades, in the EU, aquaculture production, focused on the farming of fish and shellfish for human consumption, is rather stagnating. Subject to diverse EU policies, such as environmental protection or animal and consumer health, the development of aquaculture largely depends on measures taken by national authorities. ...

Aquaculture means the rearing of aquatic animals and the cultivation of aquatic plants and algae. While, at global level, this industry has undergone significant growth for several decades, in the EU, aquaculture production, focused on the farming of fish and shellfish for human consumption, is rather stagnating. Subject to diverse EU policies, such as environmental protection or animal and consumer health, the development of aquaculture largely depends on measures taken by national authorities. The EU common fisheries policy requests Member States to put in place a strategic plan for sustainable aquaculture, which can be fostered with the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

L'aquaculture: Une vue d'ensemble pour l'Union européenne

28-08-2017

L'aquaculture européenne consiste, pour l'essentiel, dans l'élevage de coquillages et de poissons, en mer comme en eau douce. Répondant aux exigences de protection de l'environnement, de la santé animale ou encore de qualité des produits pour le consommateur, ce secteur peine à se faire une place dans les territoires. L'Union européenne promeut le développement durable des activités aquacoles, tout particulièrement grâce au fonds européen des affaires maritimes et de la pêche, l'instrument financier ...

L'aquaculture européenne consiste, pour l'essentiel, dans l'élevage de coquillages et de poissons, en mer comme en eau douce. Répondant aux exigences de protection de l'environnement, de la santé animale ou encore de qualité des produits pour le consommateur, ce secteur peine à se faire une place dans les territoires. L'Union européenne promeut le développement durable des activités aquacoles, tout particulièrement grâce au fonds européen des affaires maritimes et de la pêche, l'instrument financier dédié à soutenir les orientations de la politique commune de la pêche. Cet appui financier doit s'inscrire dans la poursuite de plans stratégiques nationaux pluriannuels pour l'aqua-culture, que les États membres ont dû mettre en place et dont les perspectives optimales aboutiraient à un accroissement d'un quart du niveau de production aquacole totale de l'UE d'ici 2020. La Commission européenne est chargée de faciliter la mise en œuvre d'une méthode ouverte de coordination entre les États membres, processus volontaire entre autorités publiques pour échanger des informations et des bonnes pratiques face à certains défis rencontrés par le secteur aquacole, notamment en matière de charges administratives et d'autorisations d'installation pour les entreprises.

Cloning of animals kept and reproduced for farming purposes

02-09-2015

In 2013 the European Commission proposed a directive according to which Member States would temporarily ban the use of the technique of cloning in mammals used for farming purposes. The EP is now set to adopt its first reading position on the dossier, based on a report drawn up jointly by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) and the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). Supporting such a ban, albeit through a regulation rather than a directive, the two ...

In 2013 the European Commission proposed a directive according to which Member States would temporarily ban the use of the technique of cloning in mammals used for farming purposes. The EP is now set to adopt its first reading position on the dossier, based on a report drawn up jointly by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) and the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI). Supporting such a ban, albeit through a regulation rather than a directive, the two Committees envisage extending it to all animal species used for farming purposes. The report also proposes to prohibit imports of any products, notably food, derived from cloned animals and their descendants. Possible restrictions on imports of cloned-animal-derived food in the EU are the subject of a parallel proposal by the Commission for a Council directive.

Cloning of Animals: Initial Appraisal of the Commission's Impact Assessment

16-06-2014

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying its proposals for a directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the cloning of animals of the bovine, porcine, ovine, caprine and equine species kept and reproduced for farming purposes, and for a Council Directive on the placing on the market of food from animal clones (COM (2013) 892 and COM (2013) 893), adopted on 18 December 2013.

It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposals and is drafted for informational and background purposes to assist the AGRI committee and its Members in their work.
