The fifth Baltic Sea Fisheries Forum will take place in Tallinn, Estonia on 12 April 2023. This year’s event will take place at the T1 Mall of Tallinn, and it is also possible to participate remotely. The forum will focus on managing fleets to achieve the objectives of the Common Fisheries Policy. According to the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy, the purpose of adjusting fleet capacity to fishing opportunities is to achieve economically viable fleets. At the same time, to ensure that fishing activities are environmentally sustainable in the long term, total allowable catches (TAC) are set based on maximum sustainable yield (MSY). Given this, is the management of fishing fleets then necessary? Fisheries experts from different countries will share their experience with modern fisheries management system and try to answer to this question. EU policy makers, scientists and representatives from the fisheries sector are welcome to participate in the forum.
