Brussels Plans to Accept Financial Aid for the Deep-Sea Fleet

The Commissioner responsible for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Joe Borg, says so in a parliamentary answer after the complaints regarding the fleets that do not fulfil the rules and have access to the Community market in the same conditions as European companies. The European commission is studying the possibility of formulating tax deductions for the European deep-sea fleet, fishing in international waters, to counteract the unfair competition of the ships from other countries that are not under the strict European regulations on environmental, work-related, and security matters.
