The EU and Mozambique met in Maputo, Mozambique, on 9-11 July 2014, to launch negotiations on the renewal of the Protocol to the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement due to expire on 31 January 2015. The negotiations were conducted in an open and frank atmosphere with progress made on identifying the areas where there was agreement and those where further work is required.
The European Commission today took a further step towards more effective and cost-efficient surveillance of European Seas. By bringing together surveillance data from civil and military authorities like coast guards, navies, traffic monitoring, environmental and pollution monitoring, fisheries and border control, duplication of work can be avoided and savings of up to €400 million per year can be made.

The European Commission regularly publishes calls for tenders, proposals and expressions of interest to buy in services and goods. For details on public contracts relating to maritime affairs and fisheries, see our pages on calls for tenders and calls for proposals.

See also planned calls for tenders and proposals on maritime affairs and fisheries in the annual work programme for public contracts and grants.

Maritime affairs

The funding is implemented through the Work Programme for 2011 and 2012 pdf - 115 KB [115 KB]   which has a budget of 40 million Euros to be spent mainly on calls for tender and calls for proposals.

Fisheries

The EU provides funding for the fishing industry and coastal communities through the European fisheries fund, which is managed by the authorities in each EU country.

For information on who receives EU funding, see the European Transparency Initiative.

EU governments are allowed to provide subsidies (known as state aid) for their own fishing industry, provided it does not distort competition between EU countries. The rules on state aid are strictly enforced.
