The 19th session of the EUROFISH Governing Council will be held on 6 and 7 February 2020. This is the annual meeting that brings together representatives from the organisation’s member countries (Albania, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, and Turkey), observer countries, and institutions (FAO, Baltic Sea Advisory Council, GFCM, Nordic Council of Ministers) to review the activities conducted by the organisation in 2019 and to approve the work programme proposed for 2020. This year, chairmanship of the Governing Council, which rotates between the member countries every two years, will move from Italy to Romania. The chairperson will be assisted by the vice chairperson (Estonia) and the rapporteur (Poland). The Governing Council will also discuss financial and budgetary issues. Interspersed with the administrative matters will be three presentations; on recent trade agreements and market access by the FAO expert, on the implementation of a traceability system in Latvia, and on Croatian experiences with the digitalisation of systems for fisheries control and traceability.
