Fishers in all 22 coastal EU Member States have been consulted on behalf of The European Commission to define who fishers are, how they live, and what drives them. The second phase of the project will focus on collecting feedback from a broad range of stakeholders on drivers, challenges and opportunities for the future, and the final stage will gather additional information from fishers as well as stakeholders to understand how the profession is likely to evolve by 2050.

To further enhance the development of ideas, the Commission is holding a participatory event on Tuesday 19 March 2024, in Brussels and online. Register here.
