Agriculture and Fisheries Council

Volume 637: debated on Friday 16 March 2018

The Agriculture and Fisheries Council will take place on 19 March in Brussels.

As the provisional agenda stands, the primary focus for fisheries will be an exchange of views regarding a regulation on a multi-annual plan for demersal species in the western Mediterranean sea.

The primary focus for agriculture will be the adoption of Council conclusions on “The Future Of Food And Farming”:

There are currently two items scheduled under any other business:

working conditions and safety on board fishing vessels—ratification and transposition of international instruments.

joint declaration of 10 Member States (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain) on future development of freshwater aquaculture in the EU after 2020.

Parliament voted to trigger article 50 and leave the European Union. Until we leave the EU, all the rights and obligations of EU membership remain in force. The outcome of our negotiations with the EU on a future partnership will determine what arrangements apply in future.
