State aid: Commission adopts revised rules for fishery and aquaculture sectorMar 20, 2023
The revised Fisheries Guidelines introduce the following main changes:
- Broader scope of measures targeting animal diseases in aquaculture, allowing for aid to be granted for emerging animal diseases and certain invasive alien species.
- Introduction of new categories of aid, such as aid for fleet and cessation measures (in line with the EMFAF) and aid for investments in equipment that contributes to safety of fishing vessels in the Union’s outermost regions. At the same time, it should be noted that capacity enhancement measures are unlikely to be approved.
