About the MAC

The MAC was established at the first General Assembly and Executive Committee meetings on 8 June 2016. Minutes from the first GA meeting read here and from the first ExCom meeting read here.

 

The next GA and ExCom meetings are scheduled in September or October 2016.

 

General Assembly (GA)

The members of the GA are representatives of the European fisheries sector and other interest groups. The fisheries sector includes the catching sub sector (ship owners, small-scale fishermen, employed fishermen and producer organisations), as well as processors and traders. Other stakeholders represented are environmental NGOs and recreational fishermen.

 

Executive Committee (ExCom)

The ExCom is tasked with formally adopting all recommendations by the MAC. 60% of the seats are allotted to the industry sector and 40% to representatives of other interest groups.

 

Working Groups (WGs)

Most practical work is done by Working Groups that consist of members of the General Assembly.
