Aina Afanasjeva has passed away

Aina AfanasjevaAina Afanasjeva, Director, EUROFISH International Organisation, passed away on Sunday, 14 March 2021, in Riga, Latvia following a long struggle with illness. Aina, who turned 60 on 10 January this year, is survived by her husband, daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren.

She led the organisation for 12 years steering it through the aftermath of the financial and economic crisis of 2008 with a steady hand and working closely with the EUROFISH Governing Council to ensure the continuation of EUROFISH services to its member countries.

She had a vast network of colleagues, partners, and friends not only across Europe, but in countries around the world, and the messages of condolence that have been ticking in steadily testify to the deep affection and respect she inspired.
