An Azorean Contribution for the RENEWAL OF THE COMMON POLICY OF FISHERY

Regional Directorate for Fisheries

Selo da Região Autónoma dos Açores

Welcome to the site of the 
Regional Directorate for Fisheries !


The sea, for the people from the Azores, is an economic, environmental and cultural heritage of undeniable strategic value for our development, within the scope of the commercialisation of marine resources, through their use for leisure, tourist and sports activities and also for marine science.

Our marine strategy, within the scope of the use of fishery resources, always includes the basic idea of sustainable development, protection of the marine environment and rational and responsible fishing.

That is why protection of our Exclusive Economic Zone, within the scope of the Common Fisheries Policy, constitutes a permanent objective of the Regional Government to achieve a sustainable fishing programme for future generations.

During the past nine years, through using a reformation programme in the regional fisheries sector, living and working conditions of our fishermen have considerably improved with the renovation and modernisation of the fleet and the reconstruction of our port infrastructures as well as the creation of a social cohesion mechanism for resisting the elements.

In this legislature, we will continue to confirm our specificity to the European Union, decentralise more tasks and responsibilities on partners of the sector, deepen the scientific knowledge of our sea in conjunction with the University of the Azores, encourage different fishing methods to include species in deeper waters, and encourage the sustained growth of our fish marketing and processing industry, so that the fisheries sector continues to be a smooth development prop in our region.
