European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

The EMFF is the fund for the EU's maritime and fisheries policies for 2014-2020.

It is one of the five European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds which complement each other and seek to promote a growth and job based recovery in Europe.

The fund

  • helps fishermen in the transition to sustainable fishing
  • supports coastal communities in diversifying their economies
  • finances projects that create new jobs and improve quality of life along European coasts
  • makes it easier for applicants to access financing.

How it works

The Fund is used to co-finance projects, along with national funding.

  • Each country is allocated a share of the total Fund budget, based on the size of its fishing industry.
  • Each country then draws up an operational programme, saying how it intends to spend the money.
  • Once the Commission approves this programme, it is up to the national authorities to decide which projects will be funded.
  • The national authorities and the Commission are jointly responsible for the implementation of the programme.

The Common Provisions Regulation

In December 2013, to maximize the effectiveness of European Structural and Investment (ESI) funds (which include the financial instruments for cohesion policy, rural development and fisheries), the Council adopted the Common Provisions Regulation ((EU) No 1303/2013). This regulation sets out a common set of rules for all ESI funds. This includes provisions concerning conditionality, performance review, arrangements for monitoring, reporting, evaluation and eligibility rules.
