About_Eurofish-logo

The fisheries and aquaculture sector is taking a leading role in meeting the world’s ever increasing demand for animal protein. At the same time, it faces challenges and opportunities to meet the growing demand for diverse seafood products on domestic and export markets and to develop competitive advantages in a sector dealing with one of the most globally traded food commodities. Producers are being called upon to develop sustainable practices, while meeting their own commercial goals.

EU expansion has created a geographical region so large that there is a need for institutions with a specific focus to facilitate the information and decision-making processes. Eurofish is such a specialized regional organisation with in-depth knowledge of the fisheries and aquaculture sector and an extensive network in the region and beyond. With these assets Eurofish is an effective and capable partner that can assist its members and others to achieve their objectives.

Eurofish assists governments and industry in its member countries and more widely in Europe to develop production and trade in a sustainable and environmentally sound manner and to explore new business opportunities.

Eurofish provides services within the following key areas:
•    Dissemination of information;
•    Promotion and awareness raising;
•    Project management.

Dissemination of information

Eurofish has a leading role in providing and disseminating information for and about the fisheries and aquaculture sector in Europe, and is the only regular English language provider of information on fisheries and aquaculture in Central and Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean and Balkan countries.

Eurofish publishes printed and electronic publications either on a regular basis or occasionally as individual specialised publications. Eurofish promotes its member countries and their industries through Eurofish Magazine, the Eurofish website and the Eurofish Magazine website.

Promotion

Focusing on facilitating trade in fishery and aquaculture products, Eurofish supports the presence of companies from Eurofish member countries at international food and seafood exhibitions, and trade fairs.  The Eurofish Magazine and the websites serve as the main channels to create awareness of the member countries and their fisheries and aquaculture sectors.

Project management

Eurofish project activities cover fisheries, aquaculture, trade and marketing, seafood safety and quality assurance, and dissemination of information. The organisation carries out market and sector studies and surveys, various evaluations, organizes conferences, workshops, seminars and business-to-business meetings. Eurofish also assists national authorities in the preparation of project applications. Projects depend on the successful acquisition of external funding and target both the national public administration and private sector.
