The European Commission welcomes Morocco’s ratification of a Fisheries Protocol which is set to open the door for European vessels to go back fishing in Moroccan waters after a pause of more than two years. The European Union and Morocco had concluded the 4-year fisheries deal in December 2013, however its entry into force was pending ratification by Morocco.
The EU and Mozambique met in Maputo, Mozambique, on 9-11 July 2014, to launch negotiations on the renewal of the Protocol to the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement due to expire on 31 January 2015. The negotiations were conducted in an open and frank atmosphere with progress made on identifying the areas where there was agreement and those where further work is required.

Strategic debate on the content and progress of the National Strategic Plans

Brussels, 8-9 December 2011

The Article 16 of the EFF Regulation (EC 1198/2006) foresees that " By 31 December 2011, the Commission shall organise a debate with Member States on the content and the progress of the implementation of the national strategic plans, on the basis of written information submitted by Member States, with a view to encourage the exchange of best practice among Member States."

The Commission organised, a Meeting of the Directors General of Fisheries (Brussels, 8-9/12/2011), in which the state of play of the current EFF was discussed as well as the strategic framework. The debate was illustrated by the presentation of 8 Good Practices by representatives from the Member States. The Commission presented also its proposals for a new "Common Strategic Framework" and the future European Maritime and Fisheries Fund for the post-2013 period.

In order to prepare for this debate, the Commission published two reports:
