The European Commission regrets that, despite substantial progress, Parliament and Council could not agree on the few outstanding issues at yesterday's trialogue on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

The recent agreement of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) cements the obligation to land all catches into EU law.

Fisheries: Commission hosts state of fish stocks seminar

Press release - 20/9/2012

On 26 September, the European Commission will host a seminar on the state of fish stocks in European waters.

The seminar aims to discuss the latest scientific research on EU fisheries and how it should be applied in practice for the 2013 fishing season and in the long term.

Invited scientists will present the biological status of the fish stocks in the Northeast Atlantic, Mediterranean and Black Seas, and explain how they assess it. The latest data on the economic performance of EU fisheries will also be presented. A panel discussion with representatives of the Commission, Regional Advisory Councils, Advisory Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture, catching and processing sectors, and NGOs will be held.

The seminar is open to the press and public but pre-registration is required. It will take place from 9h to 13h in the Albert Borschette Conference Centre, 36, rue Froissart, Brussels.

Simultaneous translation into FR-DE-EN-ES-NL-PT will be provided.
