    The General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) has the objective of promoting the development, conservation, rational management and best utilization of living marine resources, as well as the sustainable development of aquaculture, in the Mediterranean and Black Sea. The present Action, part of the wider programme entitled “Support to the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean”, consolidated and complemented the specific objectives foreseen by other grants entered into with the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE ) of the European Union, which had been executed or were being executed throughout the Action’s implementation. The overall objective was to implement select activities approved by the GFCM in the framework of its mid term strategy (2017 2020) towards the sustainability of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries. This was to be achieved through the following five outputs: ( i ) strengthening of scientific advice in support of fisheries management, (ii) support to sustainable small scale fisheries to improve livelihoods for coastal communities; iii) enhancement of modular monitoring, control and surveillance at the regional level to support the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing; (iv) monitoring of unwanted interactions between fisheries and marine ecosystems and the environment and (v) enhanced capacity building and cooperation among contracting parties and cooperating non contracting parties, with regard to scientific and technical issues for fisheries management.

    GFCM 2030 Strategy for sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea 2021
    Also available in:

    The GFCM 2030 Strategy for sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the Mediterranean and Black Sea offers a common vision and guiding principles to achieve sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the region, federating efforts to deliver on national, regional and global commitments. Building upon the progress made and concerted action between all stakeholders, it addresses the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability in order to build resilience to respond to global challenges. The GFCM 2030 Strategy upholds the heritage of fisheries and aquaculture as pillars for the livelihoods of coastal communities, championing a productive and sustainable food system that contributes to thriving economies and healthy ecosystems. It is articulated in five distinct targets that each contribute to this overarching vision for sustainability: Target 1 focuses on healthy seas and productive fisheries; Target 2 aims to ensure a level playing field to eradicate all illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing; Target 3 helps realise the potential of a growing aquaculture sector; Target 4 supports livelihoods through decent employment and fishers engagement; and Target 5 fosters capacity development through technical cooperation and efficient partnerships across the region. The GFCM 2030 Strategy addresses regional priorities while taking into account local needs and specificities through a subregional approach. Covering a ten-year span, the GFCM 2030 Strategy is aligned with a global agenda. The successful achievement of its targets relies on the commitment of the GFCM Membership in adopting and implementing relevant decisions and in supporting its overarching vision.
