DG MARE and GEPETO organized a very fruitful workshop (Brussels, 24 July 2013) to introduce project progress about fisheries management in the area of CCR-South (South Western Waters RAC). The presentation of the Fisheries Atlas for the Southern Atlantic opened the meeting with Mr. Bernhard Friess –Director of Atlantic fisheries- and Mrs. María Fuensanta Candela, Head of Unit of Fisheries Conservation and control, who have stressed out the positive and promising value of this fisheries management tool.

The Atlas, with all the fisheries information, will be useful for developing management plans and rules by policy makers. This tool will contribute also to enable fishermen to have access to a comprehensive fisheries information and thus to promote better mutual understanding.
