Spain: Aid for forced stoppages of the Andalusian fishing and shellfish fleet for more than 3 million

Published Mar 22, 2023

Tridge summary

The Governing Council has learned of the call for aid for the fishing and shellfish sector with a base port in Andalusia affected by forced partial stops of its activity during 2022. The aid is aimed at shipowners and crew members of the 210 boats and 900 affected fishermen, specifically, 96 boats and 400 crew members from the Mediterranean and 114 boats and 500 crew members from the Gulf of Cádiz. The aid, which has been agreed with the sector, makes it possible to compensate the effort made by shipowners and crew members, thus facilitating the processing of these and their prompt perception. This reduction in fishing effort affected all Andalusian trawling, with the Andalusian Government establishing aid last year that amounted to more than 2 million euros for trawlers in the Mediterranean fishing ground and 700,000 euros for those in the Gulf of Cádiz, always in within the framework of the Operational Program of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
