This study evaluates the costs and benefits on fisheries and aquaculture of three types of spatial protection measures: (i) Fish Stock Recovery Areas (FSRAs), (ii) Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), and areas designated as (iii) Other Effective area-based Conservation Measures (OECMs). The research assesses how far fisheries co-management approaches can potentially help to achieve the European Union targets. The study uses three case studies from France, Spain and Greece to collect data on the different ...

The Russian war against Ukraine has led to high operating costs for the seafood sector. In late March 2022, the EU responded with temporary State aid and exceptional support for the current programming period under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). On 23 April 2022, the Commission adopted a new proposal amending the fund for the 2014-2020 programming period, so that its remaining budget can also be used to support the sector. During the July plenary session, Parliament ...

This At a glance note summarises the study on Artificial Intelligence and the fisheries sector

This study reviews current artificial intelligence (AI) systems legislation, the AI techniques definition proposed by the AI Act and main applications of AI methods in the fisheries sector with special focus on applications to enhance traceability of fishery products, fishing gear selectivity, good practices, and potential to help young people finding jobs. Finally, this study offers policy recommendations relevant to EU decision-making to achieve a better use of AI systems in the fisheries sector ...

The functioning of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is currently being evaluated. The European Commission is assessing how to improve its implementation and will present a report by the end of 2022. This infographic sets out major legislation and policy developments that have shaped the current CFP framework.

Accounting for 17 % of the global average per capita intake of animal protein, fisheries products support many people's livelihoods and make a significant contribution to food security. However, more than a third of world stocks are fished at biologically unsustainable levels. Economic losses from the depletion of fish stocks are estimated at US$83 billion. A reduction in fishing capacity and effort would contribute to the recovery of stocks, yet many governments of fishing countries continue to ...

The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union has had a significant impact on several sectors, including EU fisheries, which face a 25 % reduction of their catch value in UK waters. To mitigate the short-term impact on the worst affected countries and sectors, the Commission proposed a €5 billion fund, the Brexit adjustment reserve. In a political agreement on the proposal, now to be formally confirmed by both, the co legislators included Parliament’s proposal to earmark a minimum level ...

During the July plenary session, Parliament is due to vote at second reading on the text agreed with Council on the 2021 2027 European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). With a budget of about €6 billion, it is the main financial tool in support of the common fisheries policy. Compared with the Commission proposal, the co legislators have extended fleet aid to vessels from 12 to 24 metres in length, but under strict conditions.

Marine resources are a vital and growing source of food for human consumption, while oceans also play an important role in climate regulation. Scientific evidence shows that the climate system has changed rapidly in recent decades, with the oceans greatly mitigating the effects of climate change by absorbing excess heat and human-made carbon emissions. The velocity of the effects of climate change leaves little room for adaptation, causing both declines in abundance and geographic shifts in fish ...

During the March I part-session, Parliament is expected to vote on the European Commission's proposal to revise the fisheries control system, centred on the amendment of the Control Regulation 1224/2009. The Committee on Fisheries has adopted a report that supports the proposal on major aspects, such as tracking of all EU fishing vessels, reporting of all catches, monitoring of recreational fisheries and improving traceability along the supply chain for all fishery and aquaculture products, whether ...
