Consultation on methodology to reduce CO2 emissions from fishing vessel engines

Dates: 25 June - 23 July 2021

The European Commission is inviting views on a draft Implementing Regulation regarding the identification of energy efficient technologies and a proposed methodology to determine the normal fishing effort of fishing vessels. The initiative establishes a methodology for measuring the reduction of COemissions from different fishing vessel engines, in order to provide a harmonised framework covering all Member States. It is related to the inclusion of funding for replacement or modernisation of a main or ancillary engine of a fishing vessels of up to 24 metres into the new European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF). Any vessel between 12–24 metres that receives such support, must ensure that the engine emits at least 20 % less CO2 or uses 20 % less fuel than the previous engine. The consultation is open from 25 June to 23 July 2021.
