THE FISHERIES SECTOR DEFENDS ITS ROLE AS A SUPPLIER OF HEALTHY FOODS BEFORE THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

The sector requests before the European Parliament that the resources of the new European Maritime and Fisheries Fund be matched to the level it had in the previous period, €6.4 billion.

The fishing sector has defended before the European Parliament its key economic and social role in Europe as a food supplier and guarantor of the food safety of millions of citizens, which differentiates this sector from other economic sectors related to the sea. This was stated by Javier Garat, president of the Association of Fishing Enterprises (Europêche) and secretary general of its Spanish counterpart, CEPESCA, according to said organization.
