Yearbook „Estonian Fishery 2010"
Estonian Fishery 2010 compiled by Fisheries Information Centre (Department of Fish Biology and Fisheries of the Estonian Marine Institute, University of Tartu) provides an overview of our fish stocks and highlights key trends in the Estonian fishery over the period 2005–2010. The book is meant for anyone who wishes to have an overview of the status of Estonian fishery – status of fish stocks, landings, aid etc. Under scope are distant-water fishery, Baltic Sea fisheries (including Baltic trawling and coastal fishery), inland fisheries (fisheries in Lake Võrtsjärv and Lake Peipsi). Included are also recreational fisheries, aquaculture, fisheries aid and larger scientific projects.
Head of Fisheries Information Centre, Toomas Armulik, has stated, Fishery has been greatly influenced by the overall decline in fish stocks, including those of the Baltic Sea, over the last decade.
In a situation where fish stocks cannot be expected to increase significantly in the near future and first sale prices have remained relatively stable for most fish species for many years, while the prices of a number of expenditure items (fuel, energy, labour costs etc.) are on the rise, fishermen face a choice of increasing fishing efficiency by providing added value to the catch, or giving up fishing altogether.
Indeed, the number of people involved in fishing has declined remarkably over the past five years, with the number of those for whom fishing is the only source of income decreasing gradually.
The activities of the Fisheries Information Centre will take place in the framework of the operational programme of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) 2007-2013, under the activities of “Other joint actions” of Measure 3.1, “Collective actions”.
