    Communication activities

    Our Fish: commissions and produces scientific papers, policy research and public reports from experts; engages with media and social media on fisheries, environment and climate themes; and works with NGOs, scientists, politicians, industry and other stakeholders in order to prevent the ecosystem and climate impacts of fishing in Europe. We do this through organising events, meetings, publications, media and direct communications.

    Meetings

    7 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
