The European Parliament Forum on Recreational Fisheries and Aquatic Environment is supported by the European Anglers Alliance (EAA) and the European Fishing Tackle Trade Association (EFTTA).
Much legislation dealt with by the European parliament has a direct impact on the aquatic environment and fish stocks and Thereby, an impact on the quality of the angling experience and well-being of the angling community.
This Forum on Recreational Fisheries and Aquatic Environment will:
improve the contact and communication between MEPs and their 25 million angling constituents;
serve as a forum for discussion on issues related to the European Parliament agenda such as the Implementation of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy, recreational fishing, biodiversity, invasive species, Water Framework Directive, ecosystem services, rural development, fishing tourism and other relevant issues;
give MEPs access to EAA and EFTTA in-house experts and broad network of scientists.
Also, we are active on a number of expert committees and advisory bodies. There we follow and give input to the legislative process from conception to final vote and implementation. Members of the Forum would benefit from this insight.
