Agriculture and Fisheries Council  – Monday 11 April – Luxembourg  starting at 10.00

Agriculture

The Commission will be invited to inform ministers of the latest developments concerning agriculture sectors facing particular difficulties. These include the pig meat, dairy and fruit and vegetable sectors. It will also provide information on the implementation of measures listed in the presidency conclusions on market situation and support measures, agreed on 14 March. These measures aim to improve the situation of European farmers.

Fisheries

Ministers will exchange views on a regulation to improve the conservation of fishery resources and the protection of marine ecosystems. The draft regulation focuses on simplification, modernisation of decision making and strengthening the long-term approach to conservation and resource management, including:

  • confronting the discards problem
  • regionalisation
  • more stakeholder involvement
  • more industry responsibility

The Council will also receive an update of discussions on a regulation to improve the collection and use of data in the fisheries sector. This proposal aims to align the current EU data collection framework with the new common fisheries policy and improve the simplification of the current system.
