The first in a series of eight consultations across the Caribbean has been held in Trinidad and Tobago last week to identify agricultural and fisheries priorities for the development of country action plans. The national consultation on the project funded by the European Union, Support to the Caribbean Forum of ACP States in the Implementation of Commitments, undertaken under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA): Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures, is also aimed at increasing production and trade in agriculture and fisheries.

European diplomats backed a 6.5 billion euro ($8.9 billion) deal to help fishermen adapt to new rules, ending years of debate over reforms of the European Union's fishing policy dealing with over-fishing. The funding agreement covers the years 2014 to 2020 and intend to fund equipment, such as new nets that allow smaller fish to escape, that could help replenish stocks.

Uruguayan fisheries are facing a dark future after the poor performance in the last two years of the country returns. The fishing industry is struggling to recover markets, and during 2014, it will have to cope with the duty benefit limitations to enter the European market.
