Public Hearing on the Future of Small-Scale Fisheries in the EU

Category
Fisheries and Maritime Affairs
Date
Wednesday, 23 January 2019 15:00 - 17:30
Venue
European Parliament, PHS Building - Rue Wiertz 60, Room P5B001, 1047
Brussels

On 26 September 2018, representatives from 18 Mediterranean and Black Sea countries as well as the EU signed in Malta a Ministerial Declaration aimed at implementing a Regional Action Plan for Small-Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

The new proposal for the EMFF also foresees to take better account of the specific challenges faced by small-scale coastal fisheries, i.e. the preferential financial treatment to small-scale coastal fisheries will be kept after 2020.
It's therefore a good moment for a discussion at the European Parliament. There's an urgent need to take local specificities into account, to help improving the livelihoods of fishermen, as well as for facilitating the generational renewal in an ageing workforce. 
The role of small-scale fisheries in supporting scientific research and in data collection is also highly relevant.
