DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries has launched between June 11th to August 20th an open consultation on fishing opportunities for 2020 under the Common Fisheries Policy. The contributions as well as the outcome of the seminar on the state of the stocks and the economics of fishing fleets that will take place in September, will feed into the European Commission's proposals on fishing opportunities for 2020.
All European citizens are invited to express an opinion on the way in which levels of fishing effort and quotas are set according to the new common fisheries policy and in relation to scientific advice about sustainable fishing.
To participate, please consult the relevant document and annex and submit your contributions to the functional mailbox: MARE-CONSULTATION-FISHING-OPPORTUNITIES@ec.europa.eu.
