What Renewal Plan for overseas fleets

Workshop Salle Région Bretagne
  • Due to the special status given Outermost Regions (OR), Europe has adopted specific measures, in particular new directives regarding State Aid in the fishing sector. For Outermost Regions alone, it authorises funding of renewal of boats of all sizes. Each region must put forward a plan closely corresponding to its needs, so that the States can use the possibilities offered by the scheme. The French Overseas fishing sector will present its plan. It follows on from the report of the 2018 inter-ministerial report by the CGAAER and the IGAM. Professionals will be able to define and express the new-generation boat needs, upgrade their capture gear for more selective and efficient fishing, and organise landing and sale of the fish.

What Future for Women in Fishing?

Workshop Salle Région Bretagne
  • “The maritime sector and fishing are often unknown or scorned. In this sector, women are doubly forgotten by society. Little by little, awareness is rising. The #Metoo movement served as a wake-up call. Nevertheless, there remain some inertia and clichés that are hindering full integration of women”. This interactive seminar aims at helping to change the sector’s image by raising awareness of women’s place, discussing the job opportunities and market needs that could contribute to better integration for women in the sector.

Consume Better, Consume Less; Good for the Planet and the Sector

Workshop Salle Lorient Bretagne Sud
  • The desire to consume better and less to save resources is in line with the challenge of combatting climate change and limiting the impact of human activities on the environment.
    To move towards this, existing projects and the necessary innovations need to be identified in the whole value chain of the sector, focusing on ships and port infrastructures, not forgetting the funding available to help develop and implement facilities, infrastructure and port services, logistics and end customers, who increasingly make choices based on the exemplary behaviour of professionals.
    Communication is key and project AMAREE is an example of the early mobilisation in the sector to be related to the challenges and approaches further downstream.
