European concerns related to reducing negative impact of uncontrolled fishery and to increasing positive effects to the environment by using good practices extends to Romania, which needs to prioritize its strategy as to ensure sustainability of the aquaculture sector, develop relevant product markets and enhance administrative capacities

The fisheries sector includes aquaculture, marine and inland fishing activities, as well as the related processing and marketing activities. Romania’s main fishery production component is represented by aquaculture, followed by the inland fisheries. The fisheries activities along the coastline of the Black Sea remain limited compared to inland fisheries.

Hence, the National Agency for Fishing and Aquaculture intends to develop projects under the Fishery Operational Programme related to infrastructure for first sale units, ports, fishery shelters and other mooring points.

The fishing port Midia is the first project of this kind that would create conditions for modern fishing activities compliant with European standards.

The new fishing port is designed to accommodate and operate simultaneously 3 coast vessels of 10 ton-fishing capacity each. The port includes refrigeration facilities, worshops and administrative building.
