Multiannual national plans


In 2013, the new Common Fisheries Policy introduced the Open Method of Coordination for the sustainable development of aquaculture.  This method aims at spreading best practice and at giving practical answers to common challenges identified by Member States and stakeholders.

In 2014-2015, Member States developed Multiannual National Strategic Plans for the promotion of sustainable aquaculture. In these plans, Member States address the four priorities identified in the Strategic Guidelines for the sustainable development of EU aquaculture and propose concrete actions to address them.

The four strategic priorities of the Guidelines and Member State's plans are:

  • reducing administrative burdens
  • improving access to space and water
  • increasing competitiveness
  • exploiting competitive advantages due to high quality, health and environmental standards.

Links are provided below to the official published plan for each Member State, and a very short summary of each plan (in English) prepared by the Commission. We have also summarized this information at EU level, grouping together similar actions across Member States in the summary document below.
