The event will bring together representatives from the Eurofish member countries (Albania, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, and Turkey) to discuss the annual report on the organisation’s activities in 2015 and the planned work programme for 2016. Representatives, who are typically from their respective ministries of agriculture, will be joined by observers from a number of embassies. Eurofish invites the observers to inform them about the organisation and the benefits it offers to its members, as well as to identify and discuss potential areas of cooperation. The FAO and the FAO sub-regional office headquartered in Ankara, with whom Eurofish has a close relationship, will both be represented at the meeting. The first day of the Governing Council will also feature presentations on the European fish trade, and fish and seafood consumption patterns.  Another presentation, by the FAO representative, will discuss the contribution of the Fish Info Network (of which Eurofish is a member) to the FAO’s Blue Growth strategy. The second day of the meeting will be devoted to routine administrative and financial matters.
