Abstract

This Regulation was adopted in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and it aims at supporting fishers and fish farmers, which were forced to stay in port or to discard or destroy products as a result from the market disruption caused by the pandemic. Firstly, these provisions lay down some amendments to Regulation (EU) No. 508/2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) by: (i) replacing article 13 on budgetary resources under shared management; (ii) replacing article 55 on public health measures and compensations to mollusc farmers and aquaculture farmers to be supported by the EMFF.
