Article 34 of the Common Fisheries Policy Regulation requires Member States to prepare multi-annual national strategic plans for aquaculture. In accordance with article 34, the European Commission published non-binding Strategic Guidelines for the Sustainable Development of EU Aquaculture in 2013, which are intended to guide the preparation of national plans. The national plans are intended to inform investment priorities for aquaculture under Member States’ operational programmes under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, although the scope of the national plans is broader than investment needs.
The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine is inviting submissions on a new National Strategic Plan for Sustainable Aquaculture Development and related strategic environmental assessment and appropriate assessment.
Deadline for receipt of submissions is 5.30pm on 24 July 2015.
