EUMOFA has moved into a new phase, with the launch of a 24-language user-friendly website that brings updated, reliable and harmonized data on the EU fisheries sector to users, allowing them to browse and extract information on individual products but also by country or by week, month or year.
To manage our EU fisheries well, we need sound data, analysis and advice, both biological and economic. How do we make sure that the data on which we build our fisheries policies and management decisions are timely, accurate and indeed relevant? A European Commission conference, underway in Malta today and tomorrow, is addressing this question by looking into the issues surrounding economic advice in fisheries management.
In fixing the fishing opportunities for 2016 for the Atlantic, North Sea and Black Sea, the Council confirmed the gradual transition to sustainable fishing that the EU initiated years ago and then formalized in the now two-year-old Common Fisheries Policy.
