Objective of the consultation

The regulation on a Common Market Organisation for fisheries and aquaculture products (CMO, Reg. EU 1379/2013) commits the Commission to submit a feasibility report on options for a Union-wide ecolabel scheme for fishery and aquaculture products. The consultation contributed to this feasibility study.

The consultation was intended to assist the Commission to understand opinions on the impacts and issues associated with fisheries and aquaculture ecolabels (positive and negative) from different stakeholder groups.
