Blomeyer & Sanz conducts a study for the European Parliament on EU fisheries control (2014-2019)
In July 2020 Blomeyer & Sanz has finalised a study conducted for the European Parliament on the implementation of the current EU fisheries control system by Member States. The research centres on the infringement procedures and sanctions imposed by EU Member States in the field of fisheries control and also provides an overview of the application of the point system for serious infringements in the different Member States. It covers the period 2014-2019. The study focuses on the 22 coastal Member States, and offers detailed case studies for Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania and Spain.
The aim of the study is to establish background knowledge for the current legislative proposal for a revision of the current Fisheries Control Regulation. The ultimate objective is to contribute to the promotion of a level playing field in fisheries throughout the EU, promoting the equal application of infringement procedures and aiming at the harmonisation of sanctions imposed on EU vessels.
