The European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products (EUMOFA) is a platform developed by the European Commission that offers information on the European Union fisheries and aquaculture sector.
Today the Commission has proposed Total Allowable Catches (TAC) for a number of species for 2019 and 2020, in an effort to restore deep-sea fish stocks in the North-East Atlantic. Based on scientific advice, these new measures will enable stocks to gradually rebuild to sustainable levels.
What is the Arctic region? While various definitions for the Arctic exist, we consider the notion “Arctic region” to cover the area around the North Pole, north of the Arctic Circle (latitude 66 degrees, 32 minutes North).
The 2018 Annual Economic Report on the EU Fishing Fleet shows record-peak levels in economic performance of the EU fishing fleet in 2016 and closely links this achievement to the use of sustainable fishing methods.
Representatives of EUMOFA (European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products), the market intelligence tool of the European Commission, will attend Conxemar, the international frozen seafood exhibition that will take place on 2-4 October 2018 in Vigo, Spain.
