Policy Briefings

Since October 2009, a comprehensive background briefing has been sent out prior to most EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council meetings with fisheries issues on the agenda.

Reaching more than 400 recipients, the briefings are primarily aimed at the Fisheries ministers and their advisors, but also reach out to fisheries attachés, European Parliamentarians, a wide range of government officials, as well as other NGO representatives, the media and various stakeholders.

In addition to an introductory cover letter, every briefing contains one or several annexes with detailed background information and our preferred standpoints on the pertinent issues.
