NWWAC/PelAC call for increased policy coherence between environment and fisheries dimensions

The NWWAC and PelAC joined in this call for increased policy coherence between environment and fisheries dimensions. They recommend that mechanisms must be put in place to ensure that direct and indirect cumulative environmental effects of activities of the Blue Economy do not add to the pressure from climate change on the ocean or adversely impact one specific sector, for example fisheries, their value chains, and on-shore activities.

They also recommend that regular coordination between expert groups (MSFD Group, Marine Expert Group, etc) is essential for the Blue Economy to become truly sustainable from an environmental, economic and social perspective, but they should also taking into consideration cultural and heritage aspects.
