PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WG PAGES ARE CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED AND SOME OF THE CONTENT MAY BE OUT OF DATE
WG Fish deals with fisheries in relation to the implementation of the ecosystem approach. Moreover, the group works on finding solutions about how the fisheries sector could further contribute to reaching Good Environmental Status of the Baltic Sea.
WG Fish involves representatives from fisheries and environment authorities of the Baltic Sea countries, as well as EU, and HELCOM Observers and others as appropriate.
By adopting the Baltic Sea Action Plan, the HELCOM Contracting Parties recommended that all fisheries management should be developed and implemented based on the ecosystem approach in order to enhance the balance between sustainable use and protection of natural marine resources.
