In a high-level joint event with the Dutch Presidency of the Council on 24 May, EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella will present progress made and obstacles that need to be addressed in further developing a sustainable aquaculture sector in the EU.
The European Commission adopted today a report on the feasibility of an EU ecolabel scheme for fishery and aquaculture products. The report analyses three options for action by the EU: reinforcing the use of existing tools; mimimum requirements set by the EU; or establishing an EU-wide ecolabel scheme. It discusses each option's feasibility, advantages and disadvantages.

Fisheries facts

The brochure "Facts and figures on the CFP" pdf - 16 MB [16 MB] describes the fisheries and aquaculture sector in figures. It is based mainly on data complied by Eurostat, the European Union Statistics Office, but also on figures collected by the European Commission and the FAO. It reviews the latest developments in the fisheries sector in the 27 EU countries and in the candidate countries. All sectors are covered: catches, aquaculture, trade, Community aid, processing and all the related socio-economic indicators, such as employment, fleet and consumption.

The European Atlas of the Seas offers a diverse range of information about Europe's seas including:

  • Natura 2000 protected maritime sites
  • fishing quotas per species and per zone
  • European fishing fleet

It's available in English, German and French.

The European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture products (EUMOFA) is an on-line multilingual database which aims at enhancing market intelligence and transparency in the EU fisheries and aquaculture market.
