Impact of Fisheries Partnership Agreements on EU & Third Countries

This study describes the situation of employment linked to the fourteen existing Fisheries Partnership Agreements, which the EU has entered into with third countries. It estimates the numbers of persons employed in both the EU and third country partners and where possible attributes numbers of posts to regions and specific Agreements. The study concludes that the EU’s policy of supporting fisheries access to third country waters via the Fisheries Partnership Agreements has had a positive impact on employment in fisheries dependent areas of the European Union and partner countries.
