TECHNICAL INFORMATION IN FOOD & FISHERIES POLICY & DEVELOPMENT

Latest News from MegaPesca FishFiles
The European Environment Agency published a major report on the state of Europe’s seas, considering the healthiness of marine habitats, impacts on marine animal and plants, and the capacity of the seas to deliver sustainable ecosystem services. It finds that Europe's seas are in poor status, in spite of some improvements but that much data is still lacking. The preliminary assessments under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) show that 80% of the assessments of marine species and habitats are categorised as 'unknown', and only 4% were considered in 'good' status. The report finds that the EU and its Member States have responded to marine ecosystem change and broader marine environmental problems with a wide range of policies and initiatives, but that these are not always efficiently implemented. However some marine ecosystems are starting to respond positively. The report concludes by setting out the need for a transition towards sustainable use of our seas and the key role of ecosystem-based management. The report was welcomed by Commissioner Karmenu Vella, who stated that he was “committed to work intensively to define Europe's role in international ocean governance, for a sustainable blue economy and blue growth”.
