In the fall of 2012, the European Commission commissioned a study on the socio-economic dimensions in EU fisheries. The study, produced by MRAG, has now been finalised and examines the local processes of development and diversification and the role of fisheries in coastal communities through the collection of primary data at local level.
Earlier this year, the European Commission commissioned a counterfactual evaluation on permanent and temporary cessation measures in the European Fisheries Fund (EFF).

FAME – Fisheries and Aquaculture Monitoring and Evaluation under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

The aim of FAME is to foster the development of the Common Monitoring and Evaluation System (CMES) established by Article 107 of the EMFF Regulation. 

FAME will ensure that the required capacity is progressively built across all components of the CMES so that effective and efficient systems are in place and deliver the information required by the Common Provision Regulation (CPR) and the EMFF Regulation.

To achieve this aim, the Commission has established a Support Unit that brings together a network of experts with a wide range of professional experiences relevant to the project.  The core team of the FAME Support Unit is based in Brussels and will provide support at EU level and in the Member States.

The objectives of the FAME support unit are as follows:

  • Assist in monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the EMFF and provide the Commission with regular updates and analysis of the state of play of the implementation of the EMFF.
  • Build capacity across the Member States and in the Commission on evaluation and monitoring methodologies, indicators and good practices.
