The Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Programme (EMFAF) 2021‑2027
The Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Programme 2021‑2027 shall promote sustainable fishing and development of Swedish aquaculture as well as stimulate innovation.
The programme will support, among others: investments to comply with the landing obligation, reduce negative ecosystem impacts, research and innovation to improve efficiency and sustainability across the entire value chain, fisheries control and data collection to implement the common fisheries policy (CFP); and the protection of biodiversity and marine protected areas.
