Study on the Impact of tuna industry agreement

As complaints and warnings about the pact between the European Union (EU) and the Pacific countries have increased over the course of the last few months, the European Parliament (EP) recently asked the European Commission (EC) to develop a study on the future impact of the fisheries agreement with Papua New Guinea on the Community industry, specifically in tuna.
As Fish Information & Services (FIS) reports, Papua is considered a "danger" to the community canning industry. The European seafood canning industry is settled mainly in Spain, particularly in Galicia. The consultants already arrived to Vigo to collect data on the situation of the Spanish and European tuna industry. The next step is to travel to Papua to investigate the country's situation regarding sustainability of marine resources, as well as the economic, environmental and even health and hygiene conditions in which the production of tuna is carried out.
