EU Fisheries: Control and Compliance - 2011


The new fisheries control system is now complete and will ensure traceability throughout the whole chain from when the fish is caught until it reaches the consumer. At any point in the market chain, authorities can now spot wrongdoings and trace them back to the culprit, inspections will be carried out in the same way all over Europe and data are now collected and cross-checked electronically. Once the product is put on sale, consumers will know it has been fished legally. To illustrate this, the EC's audiovisual unit has produced a video stockshot entitled EU Fisheries: Control and Compliance - 2011 which was recently filmed in the ports of IJmuiden (The Netherlands) and Zeebrugge (Belgium) and covers general fishing activities and inspections.
