The Delegation of the European Union in Algeria took part in the 8th International Fisheries and Aquaculture Fair that was held this year under the theme “Fishing and aquaculture, drivers for the sustainable development of blue economy in Algeria”.

The Directorate-General of Fisheries and Aquaculture and the EU Delegation are currently collaborating to define the National Strategy of Blue Economy until 2030 and set up a program on blue economy and sustainable fishing related to the development of the coastal areas.

On 7 November, the four Western governorates (Oran, Mostaganem, Tlemcen, Ain Temouchent) shared the recommendations stemming from the territorial consultation workshops which gathered institutional actors, economic operators, professionals, and civil society associations. Similar meetings have already taken place for the Eastern and Central governorates.
