Fisheries and aquaculture around the Baltic Sea

Eurofish has published a booklet containing statistical data from the fisheries and aquaculture sectors of the countries around the Baltic Sea.  The sector makes an important contribution to the economy in all the Baltic Sea countries particularly in remote coastal areas, where it is often the only source of livelihoods. The Baltic Sea with its range of salinities and temperatures is home to several different species both marine and freshwater, which is reflected in the catches of the different countries. Despite these differences, countries in the Baltic Sea region have a tradition of cooperation in various fora that are involved in fisheries management. This has contributed to healthier stocks and stable or increasing quotas for many species. The booklet contains an overview of the countries, TACs and quotas, catches, aquaculture, processing, and trade data. It was created with the support from the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Latvia as current holder of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union and was distributed at the informal meeting of Directors-General and attachés for fisheries held in Jurmala, Latvia on 27-28 April.
