Research for PECH Committee - The Clam Fisheries Sector in the EU - The Adriatic Sea Case

15-01-2016

Clams are an important fishery resource in the European Union. The Adriatic Sea clam fishery shows a declining trend and is losing market share. There is increasing interest to reduce the minimum landing size in order to allow further landings to reduce the socioeconomic impact. This particular situation is examined in this paper and an expert opinion is produced on the way forward.
