Following months of negotiations, Mediterranean ministerial representatives from both northern and southern coastal states, and including the European Commission, signed a 10-year pledge to save Mediterranean fish stocks and protect the region's ecological and economic wealth. The Malta MedFish4Ever Declaration sets out a detailed work programme for the next 10 years, with specific targets. The subsequent actions will involve 8 Member States (Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, and Cyprus) and 7 third countries (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Albania, Montenegro).
