EUROPEAN UNION: Landing obligation – what it means and how to apply it

EUROPEAN UNION: Landing obligation – what it means and how to apply it | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

From 1st January 2015 onwards fishermen in certain parts of the EU will have to land the fish they catch.

 

By 2019 all fishermen will have the same obligation. In order to give full legal clarity for all fishermen affected by the imminent coming into force of this landing obligation, the European Commission has issued guidance on what the changes mean and how they will be applied and enforced.

 

The European Commission has also reiterated its willingness to continue acting as a facilitator to help the European Parliament and Council to find agreement on the so-called Omnibus Regulation. The Omnibus Regulation would further clarify technical rules that are important in view of the upcoming landing obligation.

 

Whilst agreement has not yet been reached, much progress has already been made on a number of substantive issues and all parties have demonstrated their willingness to find agreement. The Commission is hopeful that negotiations will  resume shortly on the outstanding issues following this constructive start.

Farmed in the EU - School Project - Learning about European Aquaculture - European Commission

Farmed in the EU - School Project - Learning about European Aquaculture - European Commission | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

It may be the fastest growing sector in food production worldwide, but aquaculture, or fish farming, remains surprisingly unknown to many outside of the industry.

The “Farmed in the EU” school project has been designed to raise awareness of the aquaculture sector among Europe’s teenagers (12-18 years old). The project will bring students closer to fish farming and find out how it affects their local community. They will explore its role in food production and in preserving the environment. And they'll discover the different business and career opportunities aquaculture offers.

There is plenty of scope for student research and discovery of the different marine and freshwater fish, molluscs, crustaceans and algae which are produced and the different traditional and more modern production methods used.

The project is currently being piloted in 20 schools across 10 EU countries (Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom).

It’s back to school for aquaculture producers

A key part of the project is an on-site visit by a local fish farmer, providing students with the opportunity to talk to an expert, to build on their own research, and to take part in a fun and interactive visitor session.

A project kit has been designed for teachers to give you everything you need to help them plan and run the project, from the first lesson, through the visit, to the follow up activities which can focus on anything from Nutrition & Cooking, Science & Technology, or Communication and Arts.
