The fight against illegal fishing was a key topic of conversation at the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) last week, with FAO's Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture (COFI) celebrating the entry into force of the FAO Port State Measures Agreement (PSMA) at its meeting in Rome on 11-15 July.
On July 15, in a seminar on the status of European fish stocks and on the economic situation of European fishing fleets, the Commission will be hearing the views of the fishing sector, scientific organisations, NGOs, national administrations and other members of the public, i.e. all those concerned with the EU's fisheries legislation.

Regional social and economic impacts of change in fisheries-dependent communities

Study published 15/03/2011

With Axis 4 of the EFF, the Common Fisheries Policy has widened its scope to address socio-economic development of local and regional communities depending on the fisheries sector. However, there is currently a scarcity of knowledge about how policy changes (both within the sector and more widely) have affected coastal communities dependent on fisheries in recent years, how important other factors have been as drivers of change, or indeed how communities have adapted and responded to change. This study explores such issues.
