A new series of advisory seminars about using financial instruments (such as loans, bank guarantees, venture capital and other equity instruments) in the European Structural and Investment Funds is now open for registration.
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.

EU Action Plan for the Conservation and Management of Sharks

In February 2009 the European Commission adopted the first ever EU Action Plan for the Conservation and Management of Sharks. The aim of the plan is to ensure that effective steps are taken to help rebuild shark stocks wherever they are under threat, if necessary on a precautionary basis, and to set down guidelines for the sustainable management of the fisheries concerned, including those where shark are taken as by-catch. The plan also includes measures to improve scientific knowledge of shark stocks and shark fisheries. The measures set out cover not only sharks, but also related species, such as skates and rays, and will apply wherever the EU fleet operates, both within and outside European waters.
