FAME – Fisheries and Aquaculture Monitoring and Evaluation under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

The aim of FAME is to foster the development of the Common Monitoring and Evaluation System (CMES) established by Article 107 of the EMFF Regulation. 

Like the other European Structural and Investment Funds, the EMFF adopted a reinforced result-orientation for the period 2014-2020, and must demonstrate that it delivers results that go beyond mere financial consumption.

FAME supports the European Commission and the EU countries in building capacity across all components of the CMES and ensures that effective and efficient systems are in place,  delivering the information required by the Common Provision Regulation (CPR) and the EMFF Regulation.

To achieve this aim, the Commission has established in 2015 a support unit with the following objectives:

  • Assist in monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the EMFF and provide the Commission with regular updates and analysis of the state of play of the implementation of the EMFF.
  • Build capacity across the member states and in the Commission on evaluation and monitoring methodologies, indicators and good practices.

The FAME support unit brings together a network of experts with a wide range of professional experiences relevant to the project.  The core team of the FAME support unit is based in Brussels and provides support at EU level and in the EU countries through working papers, reports, stories presenting good projects, workshops, presentations, needs assessments, peer reviews and trainings.
