The European Commission is organising a Ministerial Conference on Mediterranean fisheries in Malta on 29-30 March 2017. This event is a significant political push to address the alarming state of stocks and its impact on the industry and coastal communities. Thanks to the preparatory work of Commissioner Vella,, the European Commission has secured high level representation from 22 of the 23 countries that share a Mediterranean shoreline. With the political voices from the northern and southern coast present, there is a real window of opportunity. The Conference will culminate with the signature of the Malta MedFish4Ever Declaration; a political declaration to be signed by all Mediterranean Ministers, thus providing political approval for this unprecedented and important process.
