Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
The Commission issued a press release presenting its review of the implementation and functioning of the EU's fisheries Data Collection Framework (a harmonised approach for collection of biological, environmental, technical and socio-economic data by EU countries for the fishing, aquaculture and processing sectors). The report presents the main players, tools and activities covered by the legislation since 2017 and considers the level of implementation by Member States. The report finds that EU funding for data collection under the EMFF shows a relatively high uptake by Member States. During the period all MS submitted annual reports on time for assessment by the Commission's Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries. However, the analysis identified six (unnamed) Member States whose performance and delivery of data needed significant improvement. In dialogue with these MS areas of improvements were identified and agreed, to be applied immediately and in the subsequent (amendments to their) work plans. With one (unnamed) Member State a specific plan of actions was agreed and is not being monitored. The study concludes that the DCF provides an appropriate structure, tools and flexibility for data collection in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. The report can be downloaded at
