Together with the SFPA, EFCA has organised an event where it has informed on its air and sea assets, which have recently increased.
The European Fisheries Control Agency Administrative Board has issued recommendations to guide the work of the Agency for the next five year period. The meeting took place one day after the organisation of a seminar open to EFCA’S stakeholders dedicated to the outcomes of the five year independent external evaluation of the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA).
External evaluations are a key tool in assessing the performance of public bodies such as EFCA. The European Commission underlined the overall positive results on all criteria assessed.
The European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) has coordinated a working group of Member States and technical experts to examine the control of Acoustic Deterrent devices (ADDs).
