The Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries works to develop the potential of the European maritime economy and to secure sustainable fisheries, a stable supply of seafood, healthy seas and prosperous coastal communities – for today's Europeans and for future generations.
This involves promoting an integrated approach to all maritime policies with a view to foster the blue economy; and formulating the development and implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy – the cornerstone of our actions for a sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources
